It is beautiful scenery all round in Coromandel but many of the roads are unmetalled and you can drive for long periods with lots of dust and stones. Also the roads can be narrow and involve quite a lot of sharp turns. It's fine you're prepared for it. Give yourself plenty of time and just accept that it you are driving you need to concentrate fully so catching snatches of scenery will be the best you can manage at times.Make sure your tyres are in good shape too! Always check with the NZ roads website to make sure everything is open.

We think we are quite fit and travelled to the Coromandel just to walk up to the Pinnacles and back in the day.
It is quite possible to walk up and back in under 6 hours but it is hard work.
Sadly the day we walked in rained all the way up and most of the way down but the walk is lovely and even with the rain we did get to see some good views across the Coromandel.
Make sure you take food and enough water for the whole trip and do not underestimate the size of the steps up and down and you need to scramble and climb the last bit so need a head for heights.

We have visited Coromandel Forest Park numerous times as well as other places in the Coromandel Peninsula, it is a truly unique area with incredible scenery. The reason we love visiting the area is because of it being so remote and mainly untouched in parts and is really appealing, in just a few hours it is possible to totally get away from it all. It is worth the journey deep into the peninsula as it is a very rewarding experience.

No great tourist highlights here, just a vast forest with tracks and paths. Enjoy the sights, sounds and smells of a temperate rain forest and help conservation too.
