Mount Mauganui is a town in the Bay of Plenty. You can see the skyline of the town on the right of this photograph. The town is located on top of a sand bar that connected The Mount (on the left) to the mainland. This photograph was taken from Beach Road in Matua looking across the Tauranga Harbour. Sadly, I didn’t get chance to drive around the harbour and walk to the top of The Mount as the day this was taken, I was driving from Napier back to Auckland (about a six hour drive).
