One of New Zealand's best overnight walks, staying in the largest Doc hut in the country. It can also be tackled as a day walk, about 6 hours round trip for reasonably fit walkers. The Pinnacles can be done in one day but then you'd miss the epic sunset and sunrises. The stunning Kaueranga Valley, located upriver from Thames is one of New Zealands true hidden treasures. Of the many popular historic walks in the foothills of the valley, the Pinnacles walk rates as one of New Zealands most popular overnighters, with an 80 bed DoC hut often booked out well in advance. If you're heading to The Coromandel for a holiday make sure you add The Pinnacles to your must do list.
