Tauranga is located on the east coast of New Zealand’s North Island. The harbour is sheltered from the open ocean by Makakana Island and Mt Maunganui.
Cafes and bars abound along The Strand right on the waterfront where fine dining and international cuisine are found alongside bars and tapa type restaurants – something for everyone, locals and international guests alike. Tauranga has a growing arts scene and the art gallery is full of national and international exhibitions.
There are a number of activities to enjoy from wildlife cruises, fishing charters, beautiful beach walks or take a tour out to amazing White Island. 49 km off shore, White Island is one of the world’s most accessible live volcanoes.
