Driving Creek Railway is a Coromandel gem, conceived and mainly built by volunteers and reclusive potter Barry Brickell.

A narrow-gauge railway that climbs into the bush to the Eyeful Tower. There are  tunnels lined with bottles and the railway itself is a real feat of engineering. After the rail trip you can check out the local art and pottery for sale in the shop. $35 each for a great day out.

The Water Works – An Uniquely kiwi experience. The quirkiest theme park you will ever visit, this side of the black stump. Laugh out loud fun for everyone. Voted by AA Tourism as a must-do Kiwi Experience. TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence.
