Our zone...

This special area on the east coast of the Coromandel is unique.  It is a combination of nearly untouched native bush areas administered by the Department of Conservation, with nature reserves run by TCDC (Thames Coromandel District Council.) and QE11 blocks.

 It includes both farms encompassing blocks of bush, wetlands and waterways, with lifestyle blocks, coastal estuary streams, and sand dunes homing endangered birdlife.   

The urban areas of coastal baches – quiet during the year, bustle for a few weeks in summer with an influx of visitors who make the most of what this special area in the Coromandel has to offer.
