The Coromandel offers a unique opportunity to experience the area for the first time, as the great navigator, Captain James Cook did, in November 1769.
Kupe was the first Polynesian explorer to sight The Coromandel. In around 950 AD, before the canoe migrations, Kupe travelled from Raiatea, Hawaiki in the mighty double canoe, Matahourua.
New Zealand is well known for its spectacular day walks and The Coromandel is home to some of the best panoramic coastal views New Zealand’s north island has to offer. The Coromandel Coastal Walkway is one of my favourite short walks, with its spectacular views and a relatively easy hike to get to them!
The Hauraki Plains and Seabird Coast is home to a diverse natural landscape and a hive of local activity. Explore the area’s artistic, cultural and historical landscape by spending time getting to know the friendly locals and their diverse communities.
