One night's accommodation at Otesha Falls
A luxury bed and breakfast just on the outskirts of Waihi at the base of the Coromandel Peninsula. Otesha Falls offers peace & tranquillity in a quiet setting, where you can walk through the garden down to the natural waterfalls, chill out in one of the pools with a glass of champagne or fire up the barbecue and enjoy the solitude. If you look carefully you may even see their resident glow worms.
Driving Creek Railway Coromandel
A family pass – 2 adults and 2 kids, valued at $83.
Climb aboard for a captivating one-hour railway journey and be inspired by the story of one man’s lifetime passion to bring Art, Conservation and Engineering together to create Driving Creek.
Your train driver will entertain you with the story of Barry Brickell and how this amazing place came to be, as your tram winds its way up to the EyeFull Tower lookout, traveling through a native forest of regenerating kauri, rimu and ferns.
Hear how pottery has played an important role in creating Driving Creek and of our work to return the Driving Creek property to pre-European times as we travel over large viaducts, through tunnels and reversing points.
Spy hidden gems along the way, unique pottery sculptures and artworks. This is much more than a railway journey. Suitable for all ages. An all weather activity.
