About the Bay Of Plenty, New Zealand

In an area steeped in gold mining history, the rugged backcountry of Waihi has some of the best short walks in the North Island.

Enjoy the restaurants, bars and cafes of Tauranga’s waterfront Strand or the beach and boutiques of Mount Maunganui, then try something fresh and tasty from the orchards that abound in this aptly named region of plenty which is the heartland of the kiwifruit industry.

The Bay is another of New Zealand’s prime game fishing areas with a good fleet of charter boats operating from Tauranga & Whakatane.

Take a trip to see the smoking volcanic White Island off Whakatane or marvel at it from the shore.
