Takapūneke Pou

Pou-tū-te-Raki-o-Te-Maiharanui commands a spectacular view across Akaroa Harbour. The striking pou takes in features of the cultural landscape such as Tūhiraki, the famed kō of Rākaihautū on the ridgeline to the west, and the distinctive, teardrop-shaped Ōnawe Pā peninsula to the north.

Standing more than eight metres tall, carved by Ngāi Tahu tohunga whakairo Fayne Robinson and fabricated by Art Fetiche rises the Pou rises from the centre of a takarangi pathway that draws visitors inward, in ever-decreasing circles.
