Thames in the sum­mer­time

Metro Magazine NZ - - Advertisin­g Feature -

The his­toric town of Thames (Hau­raki), near the mouth of the Wai­hou River, is the south­ern­most point of beachy Coro­man­del. Built in the 1860s, dur­ing the gold rush, Thames’ rich his­tory is worth in­ves­ti­gat­ing – a visit to the lo­cal mu­seum and The School of Mines are must-dos here. Sum­mer is the per­fect time to go, if only to hike or cy­cle the Coro­man­del Ranges which rise steeply be­hind the town. A wide range of ac­com­mo­da­tion, res­tau­rants and ac­tiv­i­ties make it easy to while away a long week­end in this sunny town, or even a week.
