On the coast of the Bay of Plenty, in New Zealand, is a harbour city called Tauranga.
Top Tauranga Attractions.
A bridge joins Tauranga to ‘The Mount’, the local nickname for the popular Mount Maunganui. The beach is a hot spot for locals and visitors alike. The Mountain itself also has some popular walkways, especially the Summit Track. Great views of the city and shoreline.
Kids & Family
Kids will adore having a day at Waimarino Adventure Park, a park based on kayaking and water sports. There are a number of exciting things to do here, but the obvious pick is the kayak trip in a glow worm cave. Or take the kids on a Dolphin Seafari, and let them swim with wild dolphins off the coast in the warm sea waters of the Bay of Plenty. Perhaps they would enjoy spending time with the animals at Marshalls Animal Park.
Take a drive up the Coromandel Peninsula. Find some lovely beach resorts and the famous Hot Water Beach. Cathedral Cove has some scenes often seen on local calendars. Head east to Whakatane and take a cruise to White Island, an active volcano and walk on the slopes amid volcanic dust.
