TALK TO THE EXPERTS
Our i-SITEs know all the best things to do, places to stay and they can even help you make the bookings and find the best way to get there! The i-SITE team are travel experts for the Coastal Bay of Plenty region - you’ll be in safe hands when you stop in to see them.
If you have friends or whanau visiting, we are a one stop shop for information and booking agents for all your tourist needs, including travel, accommodation and activities both locally and nationwide. We can provide free maps, Visitor Guides for all regions and information for DOC (Department of Conservation) – which include info on regional walks, the NZ Great Walks, and we sell the Standard and Serviced Hut Passes (Tauranga i-SITE only). Book your travel on InterCity, Naked Bus, KiwiRail and the Interislander or Bluebridge ferries with us!
