The Experience

Tauranga, the principal city on the Bay of Plenty, is the largest export town in New Zealand. Its name, fittingly enough, means “”resting place for canoes””, as this was the landing place of some of the first Maoris to arrive in New Zealand. The 19th-century missionaries left a legacy of well-planned parks and gardens for today’s residents and visitors to enjoy. Tauranga is one of New Zealand’s primary kiwi fruit and orchard regions, and the gateway to the geothermal park, Rotorua.
