The Coromandel Peninsula on the North Island of New Zealand extends 53 miles north from the western end and is 25 miles wide at its broadest point. A majority of its population lives on the narrow coastal strips fronting the Hauraki Gulf and the Bay of Plenty.
In clear weather the peninsula is visible from Auckland, the country’s biggest city, 34 miles to the west.
The peninsula is steep and hilly and largely covered in bush. The Coromandel Range forms the spine for most of the peninsula, with the highest point at nearly 3,000 feet. It has a permanent population of around 30,000 and approximately 60,000 reside in the station’s broadcast coverage area.
