ATTRACTIONS and ACTIVITIES




Stuff to see and do in and close to Dickson Park

One of the main attractions at Dickson Park for visitors from New Zealand and all over the world is the bush walking and the famous Coromandel Forest Park. Tracks such as the now famous 'Rocky's Goldmine Trail' starting at the gate to Dickson Park and the Tararu valley with it's 'Black Hole' waterfall attract visitors from 4 to 84 years old! Our central location and proximity to the Kaueranga valley and the Coromandel Forest Park make us a great central location for individual hikers, explorers and tramping groups alike. Fishing is another great attraction that brings people to this area and, of course, the heritage of one of New Zealands oldest towns with it's rich history as a gold mining centre. The gold hasn't all gone from Thames so for guests at the camp we have free gold pans for you to try your luck. We have tried the pans and found gold but we are still running a camping ground so maybe you won't get rich but it can be a lot of fun.

Our pages are new so the information here is about us and the immediate surrounding area. We hope to bring you more information about the greater Coromandel Peninsula in the future but in the meantime if you have any questions about other attractions in this area, email us and we will try to help!




We suggest you scroll on down and check them all out, but the short cuts are here if you are looking for something specific.
