    Ohinemuri River Karangahake

    Paeroa home to the famous Lemon & Paeroa soft drink which is still very popular today the drink is a natural product of sorts made from spring waters around the region, paeroa is one of the small rural New Zealand towns that has so much to do, located close to the town of Wahi on the other side of Karangahake gorge there are endless gold related artifacts all around the area to explore, and there are some stunning walks all through this area.

    Karangahake Gorge

    The Karangahahe gorge starts a few kms out from Paeroa and winds through a stunning river setting which follows the gorge road most of the way to Waikino, around half way through the gorge on the right hand side of the road heading towards the coast is a car park from here you cross over a walking bridge to the old gold mines and walking tracks, there are several walking tracks here that take you up into another valley dotted with old gold mines from the top of the mountain top you get a stunning view over the Hauraki plans and the Karangahake gorge .

    The Hauraki Rail Trail

    The Hauraki Rail Trail cross over the river just back from the carpark and heads up into the hills on the left hand side and recrosses the river again further up the valley, the trail is for mountain bikes but you can walk it as well, there are several small tunnels along the trail and makes an interesting walk, this is only a small part of the Hauraki rail trail that is around 100 kms long.

    Waitawheta Tramway

    The tramway is left over from early settlers to carry out the huge Kauri logs that were harvested in the area,The track out to the tramway is located in the Waitawheta Valley and can be accessed from Waihi along SH2. From Waihi travel on SH2 towards Paeroa, turn left onto the Waitawhta Road, 2km past the Waikino Cafe. Continue along the Waitawheta Road and turn right into Franklin Road until the road ends the track is around 4hrs one way so is a long haul in there the walk takes you through native bush and a valley.
