Tauranga City




A coastal metropolitan city in the Bay of Plenty region, Tauranga is positioned beside the great Mauao (Mt. Maunganui), where cruise ships come and dock while the passengers stroll along the refurbished Strand Waterfront. With Tauranga’s marinas filled with launches, yachts, and watercraft, you can take a charter out and deep sea fish, dolphin watch, and scuba dive the volcanic islands, wrecks, and reefs.

If you’re more of an indoor person, Classic Flyers NZ Museum is an aviation enthusiast's dream, with visitors having the chance to fly on their aircraft and thousands of items on display, including vintage cars and bikes. Pop next door to the Military Museum, located at the MASH Chopper Hangar, where the curators have named this area ‘Memorial of Freedom’, in honor of those who fought to give us freedom.

With Tauranga meaning ‘a place of rest or anchorage’ in Māori, with sparkling views and a magnificent harbour, this is a popular summer destination for those looking for a stunning place to recharge, explore, and try something new.
