A historic gold town and timber exporter, there are many fascinating reminders of Coromandel’s, colonial, and Maori past. There are many historical buildings and examples of colonial architecture throughout the Coromandel region. All of which can be easily found not far from any of our Coromandel Town hotels Inspired by the region’s idyllic setting, many artists and crafts people now call Coromandel their home. Many of these artists are more than happy to welcome visitors to the area into their studios. From your Coromandel Town hotel visit Branch Creek, to see some handcrafted wooden furniture, or Waiau Waterworks; parkland full of different gadgets and play things worked by water. While you’re there check out all of Kay’s pottery and sculptures as well.
Keep walking past the waterworks on the 309 road you will come to the foot of the Waiau Falls, where the Waiau River crashes over a rock face. Another 10 minute track will take you to the roads namesake, the 309 Kauris, the finest stand of kauri trees in the region.
