Thames is definitely a great place to visit with the people closest to your heart.

Thames is an historical town situated between the calm waters of the Firth of Thames and the majestic ranges of the Coromandel.  Thames is a great place to base yourself when visiting the Coromandel Peninsula.  Most places on the Coromandel are within 1 to 1.5 hours drive from the township and of course there's lots to keep you busy - whether you enjoy browsing through our numerous and varied speciality shops, delving into Thames' colourful history, participating in some of our sporting activities or experiencing our beautiful forests and coastlines.

The Kauaeranga Valley lies in the hills just behind Thames and offers extensive walking tracks and camping opportunities as well as some of the more adventurous activities that the Peninsula has to offer.  The Thames Coast, a beautiful stretch of scenic coastline just north of Thames, also offers a variety of activities and accommodation and is a great place to do a spot of fishing.

 The population of approx 7,500 is serviced by a large supermarket, air conditioned shopping mall, many large chain stores and well as boutique shops. 

There is a good trade/service sector, strong industrial group, commercial centre, hospital and medical centre suporting Thames and larger Coromandel region. 

Thames boasts many pre-school/childcare facilities, several primary schools, a high school, as well as tertiary courses and continuing education programmes. 

When work and school are out, there is literally hundreds of sports groups, clubs, organisations, service groups, arts & crafts, gardens and numerous outdoor activities to occupy your spare time.  Or just sit back and relax -catch a movie at one of the 5 cinemas, sip coffee with friends at a trendy cafe or soak in the breathtaking sunsets with a cold drink at your side. 

If  you really have to leave town - it is only 1-1.5 hrs to three major cities (if you like that sort of thing!)
