THE TAURANGA BUSINESS CASE

Tauranga is a great place to work and play. Many people move here for the active recreational lifestyle that this vibrant coastal city offers. Living here offers the benefits of a major city with beaches, cafés, restaurants and a range of sports and entertainment choices. At the same time, it has a relaxed feel – the daily commute just takes minutes, which means you can enjoy more time with friends and family or go for a surf after work.

The city centre offers a vibrant mix of residential areas, commercial and retail precincts, and cultural facilities. The business vibe throughout the week is replaced with a relaxed atmosphere on the weekend – there are markets and galleries to stroll through, families relax with the kids after saturday morning sport with fish and chips at the waterfront, and friends catch up at any of the cafes, wine bars and restaurants.

Outside of Tauranga city, there are a number of places to live and each town has its own unique character and feel. You could live in the mural town of Katikati with its arty feel, be near to the top fishing spot of Omokoroa or settle in the Te Puna countryside. Homes are competitively priced compared to the main metropolitan centres across New Zealand. More…

DOWNTOWN THE MOUNT

The main street of Mount Maunganui is the prime shopping and dining hub, more affectionately known as ‘Downtown the Mount’ … our vibrant strip is a shoppers dream, from exquisite boutique stores through to charming gift and souvenir shops, fabulous fashion, funky footwear, and everything in between. You won’t find any malls or department stores, just individual shops, mostly locally owned and operated, giving this superb street an extra special vibe. More…
