  • Mount Maunganui

    Mount Maunganui is just another of New Zealand's numerous volcanoes. Referred to by locals as "The Mount", it's almost a rite of passage to climb it, something I had intended to do but didn't.There are walking tracks both around the Mount and to the summit.

  • Bush and native trees.

    Coromandel in this modern era, is far less remote than earlier ages, and therefore you can access some amazing bush in this northern Rainforest.In the years when they were milling large trees for masts for sailing ships and such, some of the large trees of Coromandel were saved simply because they were (then) inaccessible.On the public walk to...
