15 January 2019

Looking for something fun to do for the rest of the summer holidays? Why not head off on the new edition of our popular Coromandel Food Trail Guide route, which takes you on a tour to the freshest flavours on the Coromandel.

Our new guide features 43 listings in total so is sure to keep your taste buds busy. And it showcases the Coromandel’s appeal as a destination for lovers of home-grown seafood, tantalising condiments, artisan beer and specialty food.

You can find the guide around our information centres, I-SITES, libraries and Council offices. It’s also available to download on the Council’s website at and from the Destination Coromandel webpage. It continues to be the second-top download from our Council’s website.

The food industry is an increasingly popular attraction for the Coromandel, particularly when it comes to seafood, with more than 90 per cent of the Green Lip mussels produced in the North Island, landed right here at the Sugarloaf Wharf (Te Kouma) in Coromandel Town.

Other fresh products and produced are either grown or developed right here, which is another reason people are travelling far and wide to visit.

Our Council continues to support the food industry on the Coromandel as it is a huge influence to tourism numbers. So start your journey now during the holiday period with our new guide to escort you through to some flavoursome destinations.
