If you’re new to the Bay, here’s a quick overview…

Tauranga is currently the country's fifth largest city and one of the fastest growing. It's also one of the country's most popular tourist destinations with its warm, sub-tropical climate, spectacular beaches, forests, wineries, boutique shopping and a plethora of sporting and recreational opportunities. It’s no wonder Tauranga has been called the lifestyle capital of New Zealand!

Whether you make a run up the “Mount” (Mauao) your daily activity, hit the all terrain adventure parks or just want to relax at one of the many beaches or cafes, you’ll truly be spoilt for choice when you study and live in Tauranga.

Fun stuff to do around here & some other interesting links ...

 

If you can, try to travel outside of the region so you can see all the amazing sights and experiences New Zealand has to offer. Here are some International Students from Business Studies on a roadie (road trip) to Cape Reinga in Northland.

Their verdict?

AWESOME!!
