A great travel itinerary to the Coromandel should include both the Te Pare Reserve and 309 Road. The last day on our most recent roadtrip started with a purple sunrise at Te Pare Reserve and ended in the Waiau Falls and Waiau Kauri Tree Grove on 309 Road. This provided a wide array of landscapes within the same day - sea, forest, and waterfalls.
Below are some of my favourite images of this wide range of destinations. Enjoy!
