Kuaotunu is a small, laid-back village approximately 20 minutes north of Whitianga on the Coromandel Peninsula. 

Surfers, artisans, artists, fishermen, farmers, families, retirees, holiday makers - the Kuaotunu community ebbs and flows like the sea that we are privileged to live beside.

SH25 Bridge Closure

NZTA and TCDC announced on Thursday the 19th of September that the Kuaotunu Bridge on SH25 will be closing at 8am on Sunday the 22nd of September for up to 5 weeks.   

Jannine Verner of Kuaotunu Katchup has kindly created a new Facebook group to help locals coordinate ride-sharing:  Kuaotunu and Surrounding Communities will Travel.
