View from Matamataharakeke track
Begin at the back of the Pump paddock at the Waikawau Campsite, crossing over a stile next to the Matamataharakeke Stream.
The track is part of the original Waikawau to Kennedy Bay route used by gold miners and loggers. It goes up the main ridge past a series of lookouts giving views over bush covered hills to coast and islands.
Waikawau Bay is 42 km north of Coromandel town. The track starts opposite the Waikawau Bay Conservation Campsite Office at the top of the Pump paddock.
