Tourism Bay of Plenty

Denise Siviter
Conference & Incentive Manager The coastal Bay of Plenty region, with its long golden beaches and laid-back lifestyle, has long been one of New Zealand’s top holiday destinations. During the past few years, both the population and number of visitors have soared and the area now offers a vibrant mix of culture, activities, scenic attractions and top dining experiences. Tauranga’s Strand area offers lively nightlife, with restaurants, cafés and pubs all located along the serene waterfront.

Laidback Sophistication at its Best
The coastal Bay of Plenty is located along the pristine Pacific Coast Highway, and takes in 125km’s of white sandy beaches. Stretching from Waihi Beach to New Zealand’s best kept secret, Ohope, the region offers a mix of outdoor activities, scenic attractions, culture and top dining experiences. An easy 3 hour drive from Auckland, 1.5 hours from Hamilton and 1 hour from Rotorua. The Tauranga airport is serviced daily by Air New Zealand with direct flights from Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch.
