Welcome to Hauraki
The Hauraki District traverses plains, through mountains, to the sea. It’s home to Ngatea in the flatlands, the world famous in New Zealand town Paeroa, the stunning Karangahake Gorge between the mighty Coromandel and Kaimai ranges, the old gold town of Waihi and the coastal settlement of Waihi Beach. Few Districts in New Zealand can claim such a diversity of landscape. It’s all linked together by one of the country’s best and most accessible bike trails, which includes the stunning Gorge and its one-kilometre-long tunnel. Billions of dollars in gold has been found in the Hauraki District over the last century, and its stunning natural resources make it a place rich with opportunities for the future.
