walks in the mountain

Different type of walks. Kauri trees are a must see. Stop at the DOC center which is also a nice spot for picnic.

The Coromandel Forest Park is a beautiful part of New Zealand and we travelled around by car and on foot. We were lucky to have good weather when we visited to appreciate such a lovely place with many stunning views , there are some narrow and winding roads on the peninsula but nothing untoward. A worthwhile place to visit in... More

Not many people from NZ that I know, have been up here..to the top of the Coromandel and where the roads stop. We came across numerous campers and hikers..unfortunately no NZers, who were all admiring and very complimentary of this area. Great trees, beaches of sand and then large boulders, followed by shingle beaches, dot this area. Of note was... More

The north of the Coromandel Peninsula is fantastic for walking and taking in stunning views & natural surrounds. Whether you're heading up the west or east side of the peninsula, stop for a good coffee & food at the cafe on the right at the north end of Colville. Friendly lady who makes great jams. The walk from Stony Bay... More

We travelled all over the Coromandel Peninsular, especially the northern part and it is a pretty special place.

There are many tracks through the forest organised by the DOC, most are really well signed and full of interesting features.

If you have time, stop abd take a walk in the Coromandel Forest Parc. It is always worth, taking a rest from campervan driving ;-). take a deep breath and enjoy the nature which gives beautiful views, be it the trees, ferns or panorama views

This is one of New Zealand's great roads - spectacular views from many of its curves and high points. Be prepared to drive at a steady pace and don't tackle if you are prone to car sickness.

My friends recommended us to visit Pinnacles to see sunrise and sunset from the top. It was quite hard for us to walk as it was first time to clime the mountain, but we could see a beautiful sunrise and scenery. We stayed the hut for 1 night ($15/day, pp) and it is tidy and clean and provided some pans,... More
