Bay Of Plenty Region

Located along the picturesque Pacific Coast Highway, the coastal Bay of Plenty offers an extensive mix of top dining experiences from superb restaurants to award-winning wineries that make the most of our abundant local produce.

To get a taste of the region, visit Comvita or Mossop’s Honey Shoppe - local manufacturers of Manuka honey health and beauty products - or follow the new Katikati Cuisine Food Trail, just north of Tauranga. To really tempt your taste buds, sample the Bay of Plenty’s award-winning wines and local fare at Mills Reef in Tauranga.

The region is also home to Te Puke, the ‘kiwifruit capital of New Zealand,’ where you can find the world’s biggest kiwifruit. At Kiwi360 you learn all about the special fruit that grows so well here. You can even ride on a kiwi-kart, buy kiwi-flavoured delicacies or simply enjoy the fruit au natural.

If it’s nightlife you’re after, head to the Strand on the Tauranga waterfront where the selection and variety of cafes, restaurants and bars - all within walking distance - offer something for everyone.
