Summer is the most popular time of year to visit the region. Take advantage of the pleasant weather, ideal for heading to the beach. However, book in advance as many other tourists choose to visit at this time. There is greater rainfall in the North Island during winter, but temperatures are mild.
Depending on what time of year you visit Gisborne, there are a number of different activities on offer. If the weather is good, consider exploring the beautiful coastline or visiting popular local vineyards. Alternatively explore some of the attractions in the historic city centre.
You can book a hire car to take you to Gisborne, or make a booking to pick one up at the airport. It's a challenging drive and you need to negotiate the 19 kilometre Waioeka Gorge, a twisting stretch of State Highway 2 between Opotiki and Gisborne, so flying is an attractive option.
Flights come and go from Auckland or Wellington. It's quite a view to arrive by air, you'll see the symmetrical curve of Poverty Bay, filled with azure water, surrounded by fertile flats and picturesque vineyards.
Hop in your rental car and experience the ultimate summer destination in New Zealand. Beat the birds and be the first in the world to welcome the first dawn of the New Year (and in some cases the first hangovers.)

A popular place to spend New Year's Eve, you can sit in your rental car and watch the rising of the New Year's sun across the vines, and relish some of the world's best rock, blues, roots and dance music over four stages.
Gisborne is the perfect summer escape with some of New Zealand's best surfing beaches with white sand and perfect weather. Wainui and Makorori are popular spots.
