Coromandel Region

Getting there & around

Car is the only option for accessing some of the more remote areas, but be careful to check hire agreements as there are plenty of gravel roads and a few streams to ford. Most of them are in good nick and even a small car can cope unless the weather’s been particularly wet.

Daily buses on the Auckland-to-Tauranga route pass through Thames and Waihi, while others loop through Coromandel Town, Whitianga and Tairua. Thames is also well connected to the Waikato.

It’s definitely worth considering the beautiful ferry ride from Auckland via Waiheke Island to Coromandel Town.
