Coromandel Town

Located 2 hours drive or scenic ferry ride from Auckland city, Coromandel is a quaint town known for its laid back, free-spirited lifestyle. 

While Laura caught the 360 Discovery ferry from Auckland, I hired a Rav 4 4x4 from Sunkist Car Rentals in Thames and drove up the spectacular Thames Coast.
Framed by Pohutukawa trees the Thames Coast highway is a scenic drive that is best driven in the afternoon when you can witness the majestic sunsets.

Once in Coromandel Town there is plenty to do whether it be riding on the innovative trains at Driving Creek Railway...
Experiencing the kiwi ingenuity at the Water Works... OR

Fishing amongst the mussel farms with Mussel Barge Snapper Safaris.

If you're looking for somewhere to stay, Coromandel Town has a wide range of good quality accommodation including:

Anchor Lodge
  - Spa apartments and spa suites; for a luxury stay with stunning views. 
  - Motel units; full kitchen facilities, tastefully decorated and opening onto        balconies. 
  - Hostel accommodation; clean, comfortable with a social atmosphere. 
Coromandel Motel’s, Holiday Park and Backpackers 
  - Ideal family accommodation
