Indulge in the abundance of kaimoana found deep along our spectacular coastline at the Whitianga Oceans Festival and Coromandel Seafood Festival. Sample other local delicacies at A Taste of Matarangi and weekend markets held throughout the region, all year round.

Keeping fit is always good for your soul, so why not dare yourself with the Nugget Challenge in Waihi, circumnavigate the Mercury Bay in the Whitianga RunFest, or rock n roll at Repco Beach Hop, home of New Zealand's BIGGEST celebration of the 50s & 60s.

Meander through art studios and galleries on the Coromandel Arts Tour and Mercury Bay Art Escape, held during Autumn and Spring. While summer provides the perfect environment for beach digs, summer carnivals, markets and music gigs.
