Kaeppeli's have a wealth of information on various walks available in the Kuaotunu area and the Coromandel Peninsula.

Walks in the Coromandel

The Coromandel is a walker's dream with a centre dominated by a range of jagged mountains and its fringes scattered with picturesque coves and beaches.

The mountains are remnant of the Coromandel's volcanic past and are largely covered in regenerating native bush recovering from the pioneering past. In the later part of the 1800's gold was discovered in the Coromandel area - between 1862 and 1952 it has been reported that 16 million tones of ore were mined from Coromandel goldfields. Kauri logging was also a major industry in early pioneering days of the Coromandel and the hills filled with huge kauri tree all but disappeared off the peninsula. As a result of this past many of the walks in the area are steeped in gold mining and kauri logging history.
