    Karangahake Gorge and Tunnels

    When driving west out of Waihi along SH2 you quickly encounter the Karangahake Gorge, which is a very nice area to spend a bit of time in this area of Coromandel. Some amazing walks but with steep steps and also dark tunnels so good walking shoes and a torch essential. Turn your flashlight off when you are in the pump room, and when your eyes are accustomed to the dark you should see glowworms.

    The tour leaves from outside the new Discovery Centre which is Seddon Street and really worthwhile doing. It takes you down to the bottom of the work pit, you're not allowed into the mine because it is still operating. The scale of the trucks and the mine are hard to comprehend. The tour was about 2 hours long.

    A hidden gem on the edge of town with lovely views. This is certainly a fine-dining experience, with the food beautifully prepared and presented, but it is reasonably priced considering, and the atmosphere is relaxed and informal. There is a good choice of traditional and contemporary choices on the menu, with regularly changing seasonal specials. The wine list and selection of local craft beers are equally succinct yet impressive.
