Welcome to New Zealand at its Best

“Congratulations on publishing the 2015-16 edition of Organic Explorer. 

The book is a terrific collection of New Zealand eco travel experiences ranging from well-known major operators to hidden gems throughout the country.

It’ll be a great travel companion for anyone exploring New Zealand and wanting to hunt out the best eco experiences on offer. 

I wish you every success with your book”.

You can find us in the beautiful North Island town of Coromandel, surrounded by pristine beaches, beautiful native bush, cool clear rivers, and all day birdsong. Our Cafe is the hub of a vibrant local community which boasts many talented artists, and is frequented by people from diverse backgrounds and cultures. We serve delicious and nutritious cuisine (organic where possible), coffee to sing about, fresh juices, smoothies, and wonderfully wicked home baking and sweet treats. We happily cater to vegetarians, vegans and gluten-freeists. Take time for a tea, or munch down a meal in our glorious garden, lounging under the grapevine when the sun shines or curled on a couch by the fireside at other times. We also offer wireless internet and are about to add a small store, selling fresh, organic and often locally grown fruit and veg plus many other organic items.
