True Tales of Northern Coromandel
Compiled by Coromandel Town History Research Group


Coromandel Town History Research Group was formed early in this year by Sue Wright, Judy and Arn Piesse and Julie Smith. Its main aim is to produce a history of the town and environs by October 2002, the 150th anniversary of the first gold strike in New Zealand, which occurred in Coromandel.

We realised very early the size of the task ahead, and the large amount of funding that would be needed, so we began the process of expanding the group and seeking more help.

This book has a two-fold purpose: to raise some funds towards researching and producing a Coromandel history, and to raise awareness and interest in the town's past. We believe we have been successful with the latter aim, and now hope sales of this book will help with the former. Especially we thank all the contributors, without whom there would simply have been no book and express our appreciation of the encouragement and enthusiasm with which this project has been received.

Personally I wish to thank the committee for their extremely diligent efforts, without which this book may not have reached completion.
