Great walks in the Karangahake gorge, including the old mining sites, the windows walk and the walks along the stunning riverside.

wow I adore telling guests about this awesome adventure !!! its not a long walk but gosh has it got some scenery and spectacular mining remnants - and its the disused mining tunnels that we head to explore. Kids will love this!!! You will need to take a torch and watch out for the abandoned mine…

“Im always telling people about this wonderful eatery I happened to find and fall in love with, then took our daughter and grand daughter too, and just keep recommending it to anyone who will listen. Why? the food is amazing. Fresh trendy wholesome. But its the setting. its kind of a 50's inspired boutique place. Its absolute history, once the National bank Gold refinery in 1914. so massive solid concrete walls, after yourve seen the moss vovered cute entrance off Willoughbu street, nos 5. thats what gets your attention first!!! go in the door, and the double height stud blows you away. The huge timber beams and Rimu roof structure certainly fits the grandeur of its original purpose.. Its a huge light filled space, and you immediately feel relaxed - lots of armchairs magazines things to look at, a roaring fire right now because its winter. In the summertime we sat out under the apple tree- it was such a quaint feeling being in the back yard. . Its like you are encouraged to read a book whilst you have your coffee. linger!!!. Ther eis even a collection of old vinyl to put on. Everything you eat looks and tastes hand made- free range eegs and bacon, local stuff, organic milk in the coffeees. No rubbish. The day i went i had a famous Beef Potato onion and cheddar pastry with a homemade beetroot chutney with a seasonal salad- absolutely tummy. And then!!! I had to have their Banana and salted caramel cake with my flat white coffee. A wonderful experience. The big news is they are NZ cafe of the years finalist!!! lets hope they bring the cup home. Now I tell all my guests to stop in at The Refinery in Paeroa on route up the Coromandel!!!! and when entering the karangahake Gorge to do the "windows Walk". A fabulous day out!!!”

“A great place to visit. There is a big truck and a digger for the kids to look at and a neat historic pump house. You can walk around the mine on the loop track which is around 4km .”
