Day 4 - Coromandel Peninsula

Auckland to Pauanui

Today we picked up our little hire car and travelled the 2 hours from Auckland to the Coromandel Peninsula.
The paddocks are so green it hurts your eyes and lots of fat happy lambs about, a big contrast from our trip few months ago to Lightning Ridge.


We are staying at the Grand Mecure - Puka Park Resort,
which is in the seaside town of Pauanui. (pronounced power-newie)
We have a little apartment which is like a tree house built in the rainforest.

They had a big storm last night and 100mls of rain.
And we are again on top of a hill, you have to park in the bottom car park and trek up to the room. I’m going to be so fit by the time we get home!

Tonight we ate in the resort restaurant. I had confit Duck – yum.
