DESIGN YOUR

HOLIDAY

Photography Holidays came about from clients who were new to the Coromandel and wanted to experience the area as well as develop their photography. The Coromandel Peninsula is a beautiful and unique part of New Zealand and has many places to explore that are not on standard tourist track. We can design an itinerary that gives you a chance to experience the best we have to offer with a tailored photography experience. We would be happy to guide you on some of these amazing experiences. Some ideas you maybe interested in.

OUT AND ABOUT - EXPLORING THE COROMANDEL

The Coromandel Coastal Walkway - a three hour one way walk at the far end of the Coromandel on roads hire car companies won't insure for. Stunning views of Great Barrier Island and amazing night skies - perfect for an overnight camp.

The Pinnacles - walk in stunning native bush in the Kaueranga Valley, stay overnight in a purpose built cabin and rise early to capture the first rays of light over the Coromandel Forest.

Matarangi Spit - one of our local beaches and a beautiful beach and a haven for local birdlife and backs onto the Whangapoua Harbour

New Chum Beach (Wainuioto) - once voted one of the top beaches in the world. A beautiful and isolated beach and a great place to swim.

Hot Water Beach - dig your own hot pool in the sands at low tide on a beautiful surf beach.
