Summer on the Coromandel

By Linda Tancs

They’re getting ready for summer in the Southern Hemisphere.  From 20 November to 6 December comes the Pohutukawa Festival in New Zealand, timed to coincide with the flowering of the Pohutukawa trees.  Taking place all around the Coromandel Peninsula (a mecca for vacationing New Zealanders), highlights include the Whangamata Jazz, Art and Blues Festival, celebrating the country’s jazz and blues musicians as well as contemporary artwork.  Also occurring throughout the festival calendar on weekends are dive-related activities for everyone from the novice to the experienced.  Better book now for the best accommodation.  If hotels are sold out, don’t despair.  You can always rent a camper.
