    Where to aim for

    There is honestly so much to see and do all around the Coromandel penninsula. There are a number of good places that are ideal to base yourself from, the best of which, in terms of geography, is Coromandel Township itself.

    For visitors coming from Auckland (where most international visitors will arrive) head South on State Highway 1 and follow the signs for Coromandel - Coromandel town will take you between 2-3 hours by car (there is no rail service). The drive will be on main roads, and as you drive up the penninsular the road becomes more winding, following the coast.

    The main photo shows you Coromandels pretty tourist infomation centre. Set just past the main street, opposite the village green and right by the river, here you will be able to plan your adventures and find out about some of the amazing history the area has to offer. Heaps of free leaflets, internet access, plenty of maps and very helpful staff will help you find your way.

    Sarah and I ventured out on our trip to enjoy Coromandel by renting a vehicle from Europcar in Auckland's CBD. It ended up saving us quite a bit of money not to rent from the airport location, because it was 10-15 NZD per day less than what we had quoted over the internet.

    We drove from Auckland to the Coromandel Pennisula using less than a tank of petrol. It was truly a beautiful drive, and was much better than another form of transportation.

    We ended up paying 135 NZD for 4 days rental, including unlimited mileage. Our vehicle was a Peugeot, and it ran nicely... with plenty of room for the two of us.

    If you would like to rent from the location in Auckland that we used for your trip, go to the website and use:
