Bay of Plenty

The Bay stretches from Waihi Beach in the west to Opotiki in the east, with the towns of Tauranga, Mt Maunganui and Whakatane in between. Inland, you’ll find Rotorua, NZ’s most famous thermal area. This is one of New Zealand's sunniest regions and beaches are aplenty.

Rotorua is one of the most visited tourist towns in the North Island and is home to explosive geysers, bubbling mud pools and steaming hot springs. A significant proportion of the population is Maori and the cultural performances and traditional hangi are big drawcards for international visitors to the area. Rotorua has also become a popular spot for a variety of adventure activities and extreme sports - mountain biking, zorbing, bungy jumping, jet boating, or simply a gondola/luge combo on Mt Ngongotaha.

Must-do

  • Surf at Mount Maunganui
  • Mountain biking, hiking and running through Redwoods/ Whakarewarewa Forest in Rotorua
  • Hot springs and geysers in Rotorua
  • A visit to Whakaari (White Island), NZ's only active marine volcano
