After having booked a four day holiday to New Zealand from Sydney and then seen the dismal weather forecast (except for the first day) , we rolled the dice and scored a jackpot with Coromandel Adventures.
On this memorable day, James our Scottish driver and guide shepherded us through the pristine landscape of far north Coromandel which juts out into the Pacific. We learned all about the spectacular flora and fauna and early inhabitants of the area and the more recent history of dispossession, mining and now ecological repair and regeneration. The highpoint was a self guided coastal hike around the tip of the peninsula with stunning vistas around every corner. A fitting finale was a hot cup of tea and a buiscuit in Fletcher's bay provided from the back of the van. A perfect 10 hour adventure which more than made up the days of wild storms that were to follow.
