Private tour of Katikati and Waihi


Within an hour of Tauranga, there are a host of things to see and do. If I know the things you are interested in I can organise a complete day around these sights and activities.
Katikati, the Mural Town of New Zealand is just a half an hour down the road and is the only planned Irish settlement in the Southern Hemisphere. There is a museum, murals along the main street depicting characters and scenes of early Katikati. Other experiences include an organic avocado orchard with a small packhouse attached, a short bush walk to a magnificent native Kauri tree, bird gardens, hot pools, beaches and that's all before we get to Waihi 15 minutes away. Waihi boasts the only working goldmine in New Zealand! Mining began in 1878 and there's loads of history and relics in the township & surrounding area. There's choice from museums, mine tours (both old & new), steam train rides, an alpaca farm, beautiful water lily gardens, great cafes and winery, walks around the mine rim or along the tracks in the Karangahake gorge.

Itinerary

Pick up around 7:30 - 8:00am

The rest of the day depends on your interests and what you've indicated to me you would like to experience. I've chosen indoor and outdoor things, with either minimal or light activity. There are loads of quirky places to stop for souvenirs, coffee, etc and plenty of choices for lunch. I'll have you back at your cruise ship in good time.

A Recent Review of this tour

My husband and I had a special day with Julie and toured all around the Tauranga area. We toured special areas away from the major attractions which we had seen previously. Julie is knowledgeable and a fun person to travel with. We would be happy to have her as a guide anytime. Jeanne and Dave
