Tauranga is the largest city in the Bay of Plenty and is just a 15 minute drive from one of New Zealand’s most popular beach towns, Mount Maunganui. Tauranga has a warm temperate climate for most of the year. It can be described as subtropical due to high summer humidity.
Downtown Tauranga has several historically significant areas to view during a scenic walk around the area. The Strand waterfront area is modern and always buzzing, and is home to a number of cafés, restaurants, pubs and nightclubs, as well as a range of accommodation options.
Tauranga’s harbour is in evidence almost everywhere you go, providing the urban area with an attractive waterfront setting. Fishing, sailing, diving and dolphin tours are easy to arrange, or check out one of the local beauty spots – McLaren Falls or the Kaimai Mamaku Forest Park.
Tauranga is only three and a half hours from Auckland city, two hours to Lake Taupo and one hour to Rotorua. This makes this city a very attractive place to live in as it is very close to so many popular tourist destinations in the North Island.
