The Bay of Plenty offers "plenty for everyone". It is a region with sandy beaches, rolling green hills, lush rainforest, pristine lakes and waterways, and active volcanic areas. Near the coast, the climate is temperate and mild offering the perfect growing conditions for the Kiwi fruit (which was first developed here), avocado production and for dairy farming. Further inland, the rugged terrain provides the perfect conditions for forestry, sheep farming and recreational pursuits including some of the best mountain bike and hiking trails in the country.
The bustling Tauranga Harbour provides picturesque anchorage for the full range of boats and ships from sailing boats, speedboats and pleasure craft to the largest cruise ships. The Port of Tauranga (at Mount Maunganui) maintains an impressive and efficient, ‘round-the-clock and high tech gateway for imports and the export of New Zealand’s primary industries of meat, dairy, timber, wine, kiwifruit and avocado. Its no wonder this region experiences steady economic growth and also remains a top vacation destination for both domestic and overseas tourists in New Zealand.
