Total fire ban

Updated: 4 February 2015

There is a total fire ban in place in all DOC campsites in the Coromandel, until further notice. No open fires, no camp fires, and no fireworks are permitted.

Kauaeranga Valley closures

Updated: 17 December 2014

The bridge at the bottom of the Billygoat track is closed due to flood damage so visitors need to cross through the river at this point. We don't advise doing this during or after heavy rainfall.

Maratoto off-road tracks

The gate to the Maratoto off-road tracks closes each year from approximately the end of May to enable track repairs over the winter.
