Tauranga is New Zealand's fifth largest city and home to an estimated 125,000 people. Our city sits right on the water's edge and is well-known for its blue skies, warm climate, sparkling harbour and relaxed lifestyle.

Tauranga has so much to see and do - there's plenty of activities for a few hours, a few days or a few weeks. To get a taste of some of Tauranga's unique activities click here.

If you want to venture just out of Tauranga, you can take a cruise on the luxury launch "PeeJay" to explore New Zealand's only active marine volcano - White Island, visit Kiwi360 located in the Kiwifruit Capital of the world, or head further afield to Rotorua, to view sparkling lakes, stunning scenery, countless geothermal attractions and some of the best mountain biking trails on the planet.

With 125km of white sandy beaches, charming small towns and a large cosmopolitan city, the Bay of Plenty will provide you with plenty of outdoor activities, art, culture, scenic attractions, superb shopping and dining.
