WELcome to Tauranga - you've made the right choice!

Deciding to study overseas is a big decision. By choosing the Tauranga region as your study destination you have made the right choice for your future!

Tauranga city is the most populous city of the Bay of Plenty region of the North Island of New Zealand. The city lies in the north-western corner of the Bay of Plenty, on the south-eastern edge of Tauranga harbour.  Tauranga city expands over an area of 168 square kilometres and encompasses the suburbs of Bethlehem, Greerton, Matua, Maungatapu, Mount Maunganui, Otumoetai, Papamoa, Tauranga South and Welcome Bay.

The Tauranga region also includes the urban centres of Waihi, Katikati, Omokoroa, Te Puna, Te Puke and Maketu.

The area is one of New Zealand’s top holiday destinations for New Zealanders and international travellers alike. Boasting the sunniest region on the North Island, it is a great year round destination.

The Tauranga region is renowned for its horticulture, with large orchards spanning across the area. Over eighty per cent of New Zealand’s kiwifruit exports are grown in the Bay of Plenty. The agricultural industry also thrives, along with aquaculture, marine, specialised manufacturing, supply chain and logistics.
