Our i-SITE Visitor Information Centres 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 so you’ll be in safe hands when you stop in to see them.

If you have friends or whanau visiting, i-SITEs are a one-stop-shop for information and booking agents for all visitor needs, including travel, accommodation and activities both locally and nationwide. i-SITEs provide free maps, Visitor Guides for regions throughout New Zealand, and DOC (Department of Conservation) information including regional walks, the New Zealand Great Walks, and can take bookings for the Standard and Serviced Hut Passes (Tauranga i-SITE only). Book your travel on InterCity, KiwiRail and Interislander or Bluebridge ferries with us!

Attending a local or NZ show or event? Come and see the team at the Tauranga i-SITE as they are agents for i-TICKET and Eventfinda.

Our i-SITEs also have an extensive range of quality, local New Zealand crafted souvenirs. Browse postcards, possum merino items and everything in between.
