New Zealand, Coromandel Peninsula – VIDEO

Published: 30.1.2018
A mere hour and half southeast from Auckland, there is the paradise for people who love nature and the place which is, according to me, one of the most beautiful of norhtern island's – the Coromandel Peninsula. The peninsula is largely covered with tropical rain forest and beautiful mountains. Let's see it for ourselves.

Humid forests of New Zealand are mostly covered by huge fern trees which grew in the age of the dinosaurs. You can see it only on New Zealand and in Australia.  However, New Zealand se ale od původního propojeného kontinentu Gotswana oddělil ještě dřív než Austrálie, přežilo na něm i spoustu zvláštních zvířat. Asi jste už slyšeli o ptáku kivi, který neumí létat a žije právě jen na Novém Zélandu. Protože je aktivní hlavně v noci, máte jen velmi malou šanci ho vidět ve volné přírodě, ale pokud se vám to povede, dost pravděpodobně to bude právě v lesích poloostrova Coromandel.

There is the largest quantity of Kauri tree (Agathis australis), spared by lumberjacks.  In the past, many more of these big trees covered New Zealand. Unfortunately, the arrival of the Europeans meant near end of this precious wood as it became a valuable export commodity. Hence, you may see only solitery trees. The oldest kauri are close to 2000 years old and grow as high as to 50 meters above the ground. Seeing such a giant with your nakde eye is a worthy experience.

Apart from forests, there is many beautiful beaches and natural sights on the Coromandel Peninsula such as Hot Water Beach. During low tide, you can even dig your own therma mini lake. Catheral Cove is a well known sandstone arch. You can reach it either by boat or on foot.
