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.

The cottage is clean, neat and in good repair, with pleasant views. Cooking facilities are basic, and the bathroom floor is easily flooded (floor is totally flat, apparently to facilitate wheelchair access; it would be a very good choice for a person with mobility problems). Other than that, all was positive. We were provided with tea, conflakes, muesli, milk etc., which is above and beyond expectations. The Blaikies respected our privacy. We had a very pleasant stay in spite of all the rain.
