"Somewhere near the Coromandel,..." New Zealand Favorite Tip by WorldXplorer

New Zealand General: 375 reviews and 341 photos


Favorite thing: Somewhere near the Coromandel, on my way to Mt Manganui, I stumbled across a gorgeous place called Karangahake Reserve. Hills, a river and bush greeted me. It is apparently the site of an old New Zealand gold-mining town and there are displays all around.

Fondest memory: I found this place so tranquil and beautiful. I loved walking around and just taking in the sights. Even the public restrooms smelled nice, they had been sprayed with a toilet spray that was yummy!!

Review Helpfulness: 1.5 out of 5 stars
