Pohutukawa tree - summer on the Coromandel beaches

The Coromandel Peninsula seperating the Pacific Ocean from the Hauraki Gulf, is a beautiful, rugged area fringed with dozens of excellent beaches and native bush.

The Coromandel is home to conservantionists, alternative lifestylers, craftspeople who live in the towns of Thames, Coromandel town and Whitianga.

The towns, all with heritage trails, local museums are of historical interests with fine victorian buildings and relics of the goldmining and kauri logging days.

The Coromandel Range located in the middle of the Peninsula is crossed by four roads linking the two coasts.

South of the Coromandel Peninsula is the Hauraki District, once swampy plain, now supports rich dairy farming land. Gold mining history is perserved in the scenic Karangahake Gorge and the towns of Waihi, Paeroa, and Ngatea.

The Coromandel is served by InterCity Coachlines, a number of smaller independent coach Operators from Auckland and Tauranga and by air with Air Coromandel from Auckland, Great Barrier Island and Tauranga.
