Passing the site of the Discovery Mine we learn about this little known early mining venture at Waihi Beach before continuing up the Waihi Beach Stream. We cross the stream a few times and then continue past waterfalls. A 10 minute ascent leads to views over the Orokawa Reserve and then down another way to Orokawa Beach passing a nikau grove. We make our own way back to Waihi Beach via the Coastal Route.
