New Zealand's Coromandel Peninsula is a mecca for holidaymakers, thanks to its lengthy coastline, varied beaches and friendly small towns.
Here is a leisurely trip from Auckland which will take in the wonders of this special place.
Day 1: Auckland to Thames This is an easy 2-3 hour drive which will ease you into your road trip.
Head south out of Auckland on State Highway 1, and turn off onto State Highway 2 then 25 which will bring you to the Kopu Bridge.
Although recently rebuilt as two lanes, this bridge is a tradition amongst holidaymakers.
It was previously a one-lane affair which meant long queues in rush hour friday nights and sunday afternoons, but is nonetheless beloved as the gateway to the Peninsula!
Once over the bridge, it is about 10 minutes to Thames.
This little community is an ex-gold rush town which peaked in the late 1860s.
There are several places to stay in Thames- for example, the Dickson Holiday Park.
Day 2: Thames to Otama Beach From Thames, head up the coast on SH25, along the tidal coast that borders the Firth of Thames, separating the peninsula from Auckland.
This pohutakawa-filled coast makes for a very scenic drive!
