Coromandel Peninsula Day Tours and Activities
Discover the Coromandel Peninsula, with a spectacular drive along the rocky western coast, giving way to the bays, beaches and hills of the east coast. From Hahei and Whitianga located just north of Hot Water Beach, you can explore the magnificent Cathedral Coast at Mercury Bay. Coromandel Peninsula day tours and activities include boat trips from the pretty coastal town of Whitianga to Cathedral Cove; or kayaking the spectacular coastal caves from Hahei Beach. Keep a look out for the many fish, dolphins and whales that frequent this coast; or the New Zealand Fur Seals that bask on the rocks, waving a lazy flipper to passing visitors!
Driving Creek Railway is a unique narrow-gauge mountain railway located in Coromandel, New Zealand, originally built to transport clay and pottery products. In addition to its scenic railway journey, Driving Creek offers pottery classes where visitors can learn the art of ceramics from experienced potters. Adjacent to the railway, the Coromandel Ziplines provide exhilarating treetop adventures, allowing participants to soar above the native forest and enjoy panoramic views of the Hauraki Gulf.
