Fly past the iconic Mount Maunganui as we head along the coast to the isolated Coromandel town of Whangamata. You will see the wind swept beach of Matakana Island along with the vast inner Tauranga harbour. Once we arrive at the Coromandel Coast the beaches are replaced by towering cliffs and secluded bays. From Whangamata we head inland over bush and farm land to the Waihi Gold mine, at 260m deep and nearly 1km wide it is hard to miss. Our flight returns via the Tauranga harbour and Matakana farmlands.
