One of the most beautiful, unspoiled regions of New Zealand’s North Island is the Coromandel Peninsula. It is an area with majestic mountains and a stunning, isolated coastline vying with native bush and forests.
The gateway to the peninsula on the western side is Thames. The winding roads and charming tiny townships hidden around make this once busy gold mining area a must-see. Bowentown Beach Holiday in Waihi Beach is at the base of the Coromandel and makes a great stop as part of your Coromandel Trip.
Fun for all the family!
