A 4 Day Coromandel Escape

On a fine day, there is no better scenic drive than along the Coromandel Coast from Thames.  

Any time or trip spent in the Coromandel Peninsular is rewarding, it is without doubt our most 

under-rated tourist attraction. Steeped in history and is linked to the gold rush days which began in Thames more than 150 years ago and as the gateway to this area makes it the perfect base for a short stay-put discovery break.
