Campervan & Motorhome Hire in Tauranga / Mt Maunganui
Tauranga is the perfect family getaway because of its beautiful harbour, spacious parks, and close proximity to the popular beaches of Papamoa and Mount Maunganui. Shopaholics, on the other hand, will love the selections at Bayfair Shopping Centre and Palm Beach Plaza.
Hit the beach or raft the river in the Bay of Plenty
There's also one of New Zealand's most raftable rivers in the region; the Wairoa river has several white-water operators. The river is accessible from the lower Kaimai region, just out of Tauranga. For a more sedate day on the river, head to Waimarino Adventure Park, a unique kayak themed day out. You can hire kayaks by the hour, bounce on their water trampolines, or shoot the one and only kayak slide. They also offer night time glow-worm kayak tours.
The Bay of Plenty region is high in sunshine hours. Walk the 16 kms of white-sand beach from Mt. Maunganui to Papamoa. Hike the track to the summit of 'The Mount', then finish with a soak in the hot salt-water pools at the bottom. Head to the Strand area of Tauranga for art shops and sophisticated dining.
