Maungawhau is recognised as one of the most well-preserved pre-historic fortifications of its type in the world. Features of the original pā survive, including historic pā tūāpapa (terraces) and rua (pits) around the crater area, but the inadequate track is damaging them.

A new boardwalk is planned for the crater rim at the tihi (summit) of Maungawhau which will help protect its Tūpuna Maunga status.

Oscar Perress talked to Paul Majurey, Chair of the Tūpuna Maunga Authority, and started by asking Majurey to explain the project.
