"When you have enjoyed your day, relax at the Cottage; watch the Sunset - you may see a Golden View!"

"Really cosy and warm- AWESOME!"

The Karangahake Gorge marks the southern end of the Coromandel Ranges and is part of the Coromandel Peninsula. It is situated on State Highway 2 between Paeroa and Waihi. Site of the original gold rush in 1875 and steeped in gold mining history, it is now a more peaceful location offering visitors a perfect place to explore.

Follow the old railway formation - now part of the Hauraki Rail Trail. It includes a one kilometre train tunnel. Walk the popular Karangahake Gorge Historic Walkway alongside the sparkling Ohinemuri River. Seek out the gold trails in the spectacular Waitewheta Gorge featuring the famous "Windows" walk. Waihi beach is only 25 minutes away and the hot mineral pools at Te Aroha are only 20 minutes away.

  • Karangahake Cottage is a treasure

    Karangahake Cottage is a treasure. We loved everything about it, and had a fantastic three days in the October holidays. It was very clean and tidy, and is well stocked with all that you would need for a relaxing break away. The Windows Walk at the gorge is spectacular, and there is a beautiful walterfall at the Waihi end of the gorge...ask Pam or Nigel. We will be back as soon as we can. Thank you for letting us stay at your lovely cottage, it's a credit to you.

  • Small but perfectly formed

    Small but perfectly formed. Great location in Karanagahake Gorge. We counted at least 73 cockerels in decor- very cute!
