High on a hill overlooking Gisborne, Titirangi was once a pa (fortified village). Reach it via Queens Dr, or join the sweaty joggers on the track from the Cook Monument . Near the lookout at the top is yet another Cook edifice, Cook’s Plaza . Due to a cock-up of historic proportions, the Cook statue here looks nothing like Cap'n Jim. A plaque proclaims, ‘Who was he? We have no idea!’. Adjacent is a modest pohutukawa tree planted by Princess Di in 1983.
