[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Once a thriving gold mining town, Kuaotunu is located approximately 15kms north of Whitianga on SH25. North facing beach with good swimming, snorkelling, and the surf can be excellent off the Blackjack Point. The rocky outcrops can be good for shell collecting, the 2kms stretch of beach is popular for walks. There is a boat ramp, and some excellent fishing, surfcasting and diving spots. Bush walks via a walkway on the Waitaia Road leading to an abandoned gold mine with glow-worms and the Kiwi Sanctuary. The river and lagoon is ideal for children.

Hi Tim,

Looks like a super place to spend a January day! Nice pov and exposure. I can hear that wave crashing on the beach.

Hi Tim
This looks much better than the photo taken from a similar place. And I can see Elle is still under the umbrella too :)
It looks much smoother, good colours and sharpness too.
I never realised that Kuaotunu was once a thriving gold mining town. I've been there once and we have friends who live there. The Coromandel is a great place to visit.
