Tauranga is the largest city in the Bay of Plenty and one of the fastest growing population centers in the country. It is centered around the busy port of Tauranga which is New Zealand’s largest port in terms of gross export tonnage and efficiency. The Bay of Plenty is also the largest provider of kiwifruit and avocados in the country. The city is surrounded by water and whichever way you look, there is a picturesque waterfront setting, or marina view in sight.


Tauranga is a very sought-after part of New Zealand to live with a wonderful, sunny climate and fabulous beaches on offer – take a short drive over the Tauranga Harbour Bridge from Tauranga and in just 10 short minutes you’ll be at the very popular Mount Maunganui beach. Surrounded by water Tauranga offers an excellent lifestyle for those looking to enjoy an active lifestyle which includes outdoor hobbies/ sporting activities and especially those interested in all types of water sports out in nature’s playground. Tauranga is also where some of New Zealand’s top sailing talent learnt to sail, such as Peter Burling and Brian Peterson, and it makes for the perfect launch pad for sailing enthusiasts to either learn or enjoy their craft, both young and old. Waking up and within a few short minutes you could be sailing out past Mount Maunganui to wherever you desire.
