Another great Warm Up Party for 2015.
>> Check out some photos from the day.
Haszard St in downtown Waihi will resemble a race track on Saturday October 3 when the annual Go Waihi Trolley Derby takes place. Waihi Lions and Waihi Beach Dirt Track Club sort the course and make sure all the trolleys get as many runs as possible down the hill and around the sweeping right hander to the finish line.
Goldfest runs through October in and around Waihi featuring events and activities for all ages, from the young to the young at heart.
Waihi, is located at the Southern end of New Zealand's Coromandel Peninsula.
Our native bush, the breathtaking Karangahake Gorge and the nearby white-sand stretches of Waihi Beach are just a few of the natural resources that we enjoy. Numerous groups and organisations cater for sport, recreation and the arts. Our region boasts a diverse group of businesses involved in a wide range of ventures, from tourism to dairy and dry-stock farming.
As well as a thriving present day community, the town and surrounding region has a rich and fascinating history. Part of this history includes over 100 years of mining of gold and silver. Our present day mining operations (both open-cast and underground) exist alongside examples of the old methods of gold and silver extraction. Our pioneers weren't just involved in mining however. Last century saw Waihi in the forefront of work on radio and television development and manufacturing.
