Tauranga is the largest city in the Bay of Plenty and one of the fastest growing population centres in the country. Central to Auckland, Rotorua and Hamilton, and just a 15 minute drive from one of New Zealand’s most popular beach towns Mount Maunganui.
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.
Across the road on the water’s edge, tidal stairs bring the harbour literally to your feet and children are easily entertained at the local playground. There are ample good schools, pre-schools, kindergartens and parks to choose from throughout the whole of Tauranga.
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.
There are many suburbs in Tauranga, including The Lakes. Further information on The Lakes can be found here.
