Thames is the gateway to all of The Coromandel’s unique towns and has everything you need in a service centre without the crowds, cost or hassle of bigger cities.

It is a ‘crafty’ town proud of its heritage and connected to the natural environment with an expansive bush wilderness as its backdrop and many delightful shops with local produce, art and friendly service. A former gold mining boom town that once produced gold by the tonne, it has proudly maintained its heritage buildings and has an operational gold stamper battery and original tunnels that exist now only to preserve a fascinating insight to the past.

Follow the Thames Coast north to experience a stretch of Pohutukawa fringed coastline interspersed with coastal villages, meditative and garden retreats, classic old dairies (corner shops) and other attractions awaiting those willing to take a more relaxed pace.
