Detailed Itinerary

On arrival into Auckland, you will be transferred to your city hotel. Enjoy the remainder of the day exploring Auckland, the city of sails. Auckland city centre offers world-class shopping, restaurants, bars and galleries which are encircled by wine regions, stunning beaches, pristine rainforest and the magnificent Hauraki Gulf. This afternoon meet your local tour representative who will provide a tour briefing and confirm tomorrow’s departure details.
Hotel: Grand Chancellor Auckland City

Following breakfast, travel south over the Bombay Hills and then east to the Coromandel Peninsula. Stop in Thames, the gateway to the Peninsula before joining the spectacular coastal road along the shores of the Firth of Thames. Pass by small beachside communities such as Te Puru and Tapu, and the glistening harbours of Manaia and Te Kouma. Explore Coromandel Township where gold was first discovered in 1852. Further east to Whitianga—the largest town on the east coast of the Peninsula, and then onto Hot Water Beach in search of the famous thermal springs (subject to tides). Further south travel through the seaside town of Tairua and then onwards to Pauanui with its beautiful long sandy beach and bush clad Mount Pauanui in the background. Dinner is included tonight.
Hotel: Pauanui Pines Motor Lodge. B,D

A full day at Leisure in Pauanui to enjoy walks, the beach, swimming or just relaxing. Pauanui is a gem in the Coromandel crown. Settlement in the area dates back to the 1800’s, however the population didn’t start to increase until the early 1970’s with the development of the Pauanui Ocean Beach Resort. Development continued in the 1990’s with the creation of New Zealand’s first waterways housing estate. B

Today you have the choice to stay at the beach in Pauanui or join an included day excursion to the coastal settlement of Whangamata. With a year round population of approximately 4000 people, this number swells to 60,000 during the Christmas New Year period. It is a summer playground for Kiwis from Auckland, Hamilton and further afield. You will also visit the small seaside communities of Opoutere and Onemana. B

After leaving the east coast of the Coromandel this morning, head to the Karangahake Gorge to visit the remains of a historic Gold mining town. Continue on via Paeroa, famous for the L&P (Lemon and Paeroa) soft drink and then Ngatea on the Hauraki Plains. Join the Seabird Coast passing along the western shores of the Firth of Thames through Miranda and Kaiaua. Next is the rural suburb of Clevedon on the southern outskirts of Auckland City. Follow the Pohutukawa Coast through coastal Maraetai before arriving back in Auckland City with a brief sightseeing tour on arrival. Enjoy a farewell dinner this evening.
