We will enjoy lunch and have the opportunity to explore a wide range of water-based activities and whimsical sculptures. After this unique experience we'll make our way to Tangiaro Kiwi Retreat, a tranquil oasis nestled in the heart of nature. Dinner will be onsite at the Tangiaro Kiwi Retreat Restaurant. Following on from our busy day we'll retire to our comfortable accommodation and rest up for another exciting day exploring the beauty of the Coromandel.

This morning we'll farewell Port Charles and make our way back to Coromandel Township. We'll take some time to explore this quirky small town and visit Driving Creek Railway taking the 1-hour train trip through the native kauri forest. The rail line includes two spirals, three short tunnels, five reversing points and several large viaducts as it climbs up to the mountain-top terminus, called the Eyeful Tower. We then make our way over to the East Coast to Whitianga. Tonight, we will be staying at 'The Beachside Resort', one of NZ's most popular holiday hot spots over summer. Dinner tonight is at a local restaurant.

We take a short drive to the Wharf with breakfast behind us to meet the Glass Bottom Boat. Sit back and watch the prolific marine life through the glass panel within minutes of leaving the Wharf, visiting Shakespeare Cliff, the beautiful surroundings of the Cooks Beach Blowhole getting up close to the world-famous Cathedral Cove and exploring the bays on each side. Learn how the Cathedral Cove was formed and witness the beauty of the Cove itself and surrounding beaches. We also visit one of the largest sea caves in New Zealand along the way. On our return, we will disembark at Cooks Beach, enjoy a local lunch before taking a scenic drive to lookouts before returning to Whitianga. You are in for a treat tonight with dinner at the Lost Spring. Dine tonight within a stunning setting and enjoy beautiful lagoon views like no other.
DAY FIVE B, L
Sadly, we have come to our final day. However, we are in for a real treat on the way home today. Situated in the Puketui Valley in 2015, Gus and Sarah Anning-Rowe built a "global model" earth ship in New Zealand in the space of less than one year – an amazing achievement. We will get the opportunity to view this unique property and have a catered lunch with time for questions. We will then continue on our way homeward bound, full of inspiration and exciting tales to share.
