Looking strange? see an archived version here

The peninsula on which the town of Tauranga was established was originally known as Te Papa, and so the military camp was referred to as Camp Te Papa.

The area stretching from Beach Road, (now The Strand) below the Monmouth Redoubt west as far as Cameron Road, and from Brown Street to about Hamilton Street is still known as The Camp by older residents.

Barracks and tents for the troops were set up in this area.
