This is a very isolated rural practice which works closely with the small, tight knit community. The practice focusses on considering each patient holistically, taking into account their physical, emotional and nutritional needs. There are approximately 700 permanent patients. During the Christmas and New Year period this can swell to 10,000 as holidaymakers flock to this much loved region.
A short hour and a half drive from Auckland, Hamilton and Tauranga lies the Coromandel, New Zealand’s favourite destination, with a population estimated around 26,700. Its unspoilt landscape and relaxed lifestyle make it an ideal holiday destination. Framed by native Pohutukawa trees on the western side, beautiful white sandy beaches on the east and divided by ranges cloaked in native rainforest, the Coromandel’s 400kms of coastline offers the visitor a truly distinctive blend of experiences.
The Coromandel is blessed with some of New Zealand’s best weather. Temperatures reach around 24 to 31 °C in the summer and on average 12 to 14 °C in the middle of the winter months.
Summer festivals include Keltic Fair a fun, family days of crafts, music and entertainment, The Tairua Wine and Food Festival and the Paeroa Highland Games and Tattoo. There is also plenty to do for multisport fans including the Moehau Multisport Race and the Surf 2 Firth Bush Marathon.
