Hire a campervan in Bay of Plenty Region


Thanks to relatively mild winters on the northern coast of North Island, Bay of Plenty lives up to its name in terms of things to do in the area. Bay of Plenty is New Zealand’s warmest region, and even during the winter, average temperatures hover between 9 and 16 degrees Celsius. There are many beaches along the 129km stretch of the bay, and the warm climate brings a lot of people here. As such, Tauranga is an urban centre nestled up to the beach, with about 134,000 people. Even though it may be too cold to go in the water in winter, a walk along the beach still lets you see the beautiful blue waters and stunning vistas alongside beach attractions on the edge of the city. Three mountains in the area’s western portion, most notably Mount Maunganui, offer fantastic views of the bay and the city. These beautiful areas also play an important part of New Zealand history. Maori legend says that migration canoes made landfall in the Bay of Plenty as the Maori people settled in this region. James Cook made first contact with the Maori in 1769, and he named this area Bay of Plenty for the abundant food sources here.

Wingspan National Bird of Prey Centre

From grassroots beginnings in the 1980’s and the founding of the Wingspan Charitable Trust in 1992, Wingspan is now recognized as New Zealand’s leading conservation, education and research organization for birds of prey. Wingspan Bird of Prey Centre was established in Rotorua in 2002. At Wingspan’s core is a commitment to the conservation of the threatened ‘Karearea’ New Zealand falcon.  Being part of New Zealand’s unique natural heritage, falcons are a taonga (treasured) species to tangata whenua (Māori, people of the land).  Wingspan supports wild populations directly by releasing captive bred falcons and rehabilitating injured wild birds.  Through research and advocacy, Wingspan also supports long-term sustainable conservation action by identifying the reasons for the decline in wild populations and promoting action to reverse this. The Wingspan National Bird of Prey Centre is a place where people can visit and see birds of prey up close during interactive flying displays, hosted by the country’s leading experts. The displays showcase the spectacular flying skills of these amazing birds and are a unique educational experience enjoyed by children and adults alike.

But Rotorua is not only known for what lies below. Rotorua has some of the richest Maori culture in New Zealand and a great place to experience a Maori concert in a Marae (meeting house) and to partake of a traditional 'Hangi' banquet.

The Government Gardens are a pleasure to walk through.
