Visit Kawerau with Mighway

Hire a campervan in Kawerau


Located in the Bay of Plenty region of New Zealand's North Island, Kawerau is a small town located in a beautiful part of the country. Mount Edgecumbe/Putauaki, which can easily be seen from the town, lies 3 km to the east. The Tarawera River cuts through the town, flowing along the eastern portion of Kawerau and continuing north to the Bay of Plenty. Kawerau's water is supplied to the town by two natural springs and was voted the best-tasting water in the country in 2003 and 2004. The geothermal hot springs in the surrounding bush are operated by local families and provide the needed power for the community's pulp and paper mills, the main source of employment for the community. While the natural beauty of the area is a major reason people decide to visit Kawerau, the town is within easy driving distance of much larger cities, including Tauranga 100 km to the northwest and Rotorua 58 km to the west. The community hosts the Kawerau King of the Mountain annually. This 8K involves racing to the summit of Mount Edgecumbe and back. Because of the gruelling nature of the race, participants who complete the race in less than an hour are included in the SUB 60 Hall of Fame. The race takes place in October, but there are many activities to enjoy in the community no matter the time of year. Renting a motorhome with Mighway will allow you to easily travel the region during your stay in Kawerau.
