Coromandel Town

Coromandel Town is full of history from New Zealand's early gold mining and logging days. Set on a natural harbour, the town was named after the ship H.M.S Coromandel, which called here in 1820 to collect kauri logs to make spars for the British Royal Navy.

Coromandel has many restored Victorian buildings, a narrow gauge mountain railway and a small mining museum. The town has New Zealand’s last fully functional stamper battery - still on its original site and working on a daily basis.

There are galleries and craft shops showcasing the local talent. The town attracts artists, potters, woodworkers and craftspeople from around the country and the world, inspired by the tranquil atmosphere and the spectacular natural surroundings.

Coromandel Town is also a sun-soaked water sports paradise. There are some great opportunities for you to swim with dolphins, go sea kayaking, snorkelling and sailing. The locals are very friendly with a relaxed, laid back attitude and life style.

North of Coromandel Town, you’ll find the tiny town of Colville. Once New Zealand’s capital of the 70s hippy culture, the General Store, Café and diminutive Post Office are places to stop and have a look around. The Colville General Store is the last place to get provisions, petrol and bait if you head up further north.
