Mini Guide for Tauranga

Tauranga is a resort town on New Zealand’s North Island. It is famous for its beaches and a laid back summery feel. Luxury cruise liners often dock here at the town’s port. The town’s name comes from the Maori meaning ‘sheltered anchorage’.

You can fly into Wellington or Auckland and get a connecting flight to Tauranga Airport. From there you can collect your Hire Car to get into the town.

Drive out to Katikati and soak in the hot springs. Have a snack in one of the quirky cafes there and then take a vineyard tour. Te Puke is worth driving out to - it is a rural town in the orchard region. If you want to head for more beaches, Papamoa Beach is 15 km south of Tauranga or if you need some peace and quiet, go to Pukehina Beach a bit further South.
