The Coromandel Peninsula is one of New Zealand's most outstanding regions of natural beauty. Luxuriant subtropical rainforest covers the jagged remnants of a fiery volcanic past, while pristine beaches and rocky headlands are just part of the spectacular coastal scenery. The remains of gold-mining and kauri-logging endeavours as well as early Maori sites contribute to the character and interest of this area. Fully revised and updated, Day Walks of the Coromandel is an ideal companion for anyone keen to discover and appreciate this diverse region.
