Tauranga Visitor Centre

95 Willow Street, Tauranga
Tauranga, Bay Of Plenty
Wealthy Tauranga (pop 100,000) is one of NZ's fastest growing cities. Its growth is given impetus because the climate has made it an attractive place to retire. The city centre is concentrated on a narrow peninsula with parks and gardens backing on to a lively waterfront area.

Tauranga is New Zealand's largest export port, hosting cruise ships whose passengers visit Rotorua and other Bay of Plenty attractions and exporting forest products, including logs, kiwi fruit and dairy products.

The commercialised beach resort of Mt Maunganui is a suburb of Tauranga.

If you are visiting the region without a vehicle and want to split time between the centres the "Bay Hopper" bus service links Tauranga, Mt Maunganui and the beach suburb of Papamoa.

Tauranga is home to the annual National Jazz Festival.
