Itinerary

A 90-minute drive South-East of Auckland is Coromandel's main town, Thames, where we take a short break. Then the spectacular Western Coast road leads us to Coromandel township where renowned New Zealand potter, Barry Brickell has his studio. Ride his own designed and built mountain railway system on a memorable journey through the rugged landscape.

Our next stop is for a quiet stroll in the pristine rainforest to view some of the magnificent Kauri trees which once covered the Coromandel Peninsula.

The journey continues across the mountain divide and descends towards the East Coast beaches where we stop for lunch. Visit Hot Water Beach where you can dig your own hot tub right beside the lapping waves. A short drive away is Cathedral Cove, where the Pacific Ocean washes through a natural arch onto a white sandy beach backed by white cliffs. This stunning location was used for the filming of The Chronicles of Nania: Prince Caspian. There is a half hour downhill walk to the beach from here which means of course the walk back is uphill!

Our journey home to Auckland heads back over the hills by a different route.
