View From The Mount: Welcome to Great Golf, Fishing and Surf
Caleb Walsh is a Digital Designer at Cab Creative and an avid photographer, and someone who Sarah has known for many years. Caleb lives in the picturesque region of Mount Maunganui in the Bay of Plenty, New Zealand, and when he made the move from Auckland, his Instagram account exploded with photos of a lifestyle many of us dream of behind our desks. In this article, he shares what makes ‘The Mount’ worth a visit.
Living on The Mount
The Mount (as the locals refer to it) has something for everyone.
Within a 10 minute drive, I can play 18 holes of golf on a perfectly manicured public golf course, surf or swim at one of New Zealand’s best surf beaches, see a movie, shop from over 30 boutique fashion and homeware stores, climb a mountain and get a 360 degree view of the entire East Coast of the North Island, watch a live super rugby game at the stadium, watch the New Zealand Black Caps (cricket team) take on Australia at the oval under lights, try one of a dozen locally brewed craft beers, take in a Night Owl Cinema overlooking the world famous Mount Maunganui beach, shop at the Little Big Markets for anything I want, watch the largest cruise ships in the world enter and exit the harbour mouth while eating fresh Fish’n’Chips on Pilot Bay, see world-renowned street/graffiti art throughout the area – and did I mentioned the amazing local cuisine?
