SEE THE BAY A DIFFERENT WAY
Whether you’ve lived here for decades or are a recent arrival, there’s always more to discover in our beautiful backyard.
Have you paddled across Lake McLaren on Waimarino’s evening glow worm kayak tour? Or taken in the view from 15,000 feet with Skydive Tauranga? Try stand up paddleboarding with Mauao Adventures or ride down the Rangitāiki or Wairoa rivers on an inflatable Riverbug. Hop aboard the Bay Explorer and experience an incredible day out spotting dolphins and marine wildlife. History buffs will love stepping back in time at The Elms | Te Papa Tauranga and learning about our region’s earliest European settlers. Or book a scenic flight with Adventure Helicopters and be whisked away to the Papamoa Hills, Kaimāī Range and Ōmokoroa – all within half an hour.
Try something new this spring and cement your place as a true Bay of Plenty local!
