Monmouth Redoubt

Est. 1964.  A strategic defensive position atop a sea cliff, the high land at the northern end of Te Papa peninsula was once part of Ōtamataha Pā. The name Taumata-Kahawai comes from it being the first place to see kahawai (fish) as they swim down Tauranga harbour. Occupied and rebuilt by the 43rd (Monmouthshire) Regiment of Foot in January 1864 when they arrived in Tauranga.
