Location Map
Tauranga (population 107,706 2006 census) is the largest city of the Bay of Plenty region of the North Island of New Zealand. It is the ninth largest city in the country, and is 105 km east of Hamilton and 85 km north of Rotorua, and is the city with the fastest growing population in New Zealand.
Due to its sheltered position on the east coast, Tauranga enjoys a warm, dry climate. This has made it a popular location to retire to. During the summer months the population swells as the holidaymakers descend on the city.

Much of the countryside surrounding Tauranga is horticultural land, used to grow a wide range of fresh produce for both domestic consumption and export. The area is particularly well known for growing tangelos (a grapefruit / tangerine cross) and kiwifruit. The Port of Tauranga also experiences brisk but seasonal shipping traffic and is a regular stop off for both container ships and luxury cruise liners.
