Tairāwhiti is home to some truly unique experiences, only found in the East Coast of New Zealand.
Follow the beautiful East Coast from north to south, travel scenic SH35 from Ōpōtiki along winding roads through picturesque towns down to the city hub of Gisborne. Enjoy beautiful beaches, relaxed towns, stunning surf breaks, beautiful hot springs and bush-clad walking tracks. Stargazing, mountain biking and one of New Zealand's favourite waterfalls, these are just some of the inland gems not to be missed.
Exceptional wineries, award-wining ciders and the older independent brewery in New Zealand. The land of the first light is a thirst-quenching region to appease even the most refined taste buds. From golden lagers to exquisite chardonnay, ginger beer and biodynamic wines, there’s a great variety of homegrown beverages to enjoy and experience.
