Stopped on first day to nz on way to hot water beach, drive is spectacular, gardens were great, ducks cute, cafe looked like it had divine food. Really chilled atmosphere, wish we could have stayed longer.

We had a pleasant lunch with friends. The food was delicious and there was a good selection. Friendly, unobtrusive service.

And do have a meal. The chef is very imaginative - try his hot and cold pea soup, for example. And then walk to the falls, through beautiful gardens. Take swimming attire if it's that sort of day, there's a pool at the falls.

Interesting gardens worked into the hillside and forest. We enjoyed our slow stroll. Had tea and banana bread after.

Raparua Watergrdens is a 64-acre private estate nestled in the midst of the Coromandel Forest Park. It is worthy to spend there one hour on your way to Hot Water Beach or to Coromandel Town. Watergends offers something for everyone who loves nature: beatiful trees, ferns, seasonal flora, lily ponds, meandering walks over lush green lawns, bridges and streams, garden sculptures and a relaxing bush walk to a cascading waterfall. I talked to the owner. She told me a story of the Raparua Watergardens. Must to see in Coromandel"!
