Tauranga is positioned beside the great Mauao (Mt. Maunganui), where cruise ships come and dock; while the passengers stroll along the refurbished Strand Waterfront. Tauranga’s marinas are filled with launches, yachts, and watercraft. It is here you can take a charter out and deep sea fish, dolphin watch, and scuba dive the volcanic islands, wrecks, and reefs.
Classic Flyers NZ Museum is an aviation enthusiast dream as visitors have the chance to fly on their aircraft. There are 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 created this area as a ‘Memorial of Freedom’, in honor of those who fought to give us freedom.
