Itinerary

Hi everyone!

Will have 2 whole days in Coromondel together with young family in December of next year. What would be the best things to do in a limited time? Our interests are beautiful scenery and walks (not too strenuous). Cathedral cove and Kharangahake gorge both look great! Anything else we should look into? What would be a good place to base ourselves?

All suggestions are much appreciated!

Whitianga is a reasonable size town with plenty of accommodation options. Add Hot Water Beach to your trip to Cathedral Cove (they are not too far away from each other). If you end up going through Coromandel township, Driving Creek Railway and the Waterworks are great for families.

Coromandel Town is really nice, and a great place to base yourself. There's the Kauri Bushwalk on the 309 Rd, the Harray Track, Scenic Tracks and beaches not far from the main town. You can also do what the locals call 'The loop' which is a drive around the whole peninsula, and you can stop at all of the beaches on the way around. I would reserve the whole day to do the loop.
