This beautiful secluded region has an abundance of wilderness with miles of golden sandy beaches, sparkling lakes & rivers. The coastal trip to Gisborne from Opotiki is on fully sealed highway, with spectacular beaches & rugged coastline.

World-class wineries flourish in Gisborne's climate; although recognised for Chardonnay, other wines are successfully produced. Wineries welcome visitors & many have a café or restaurant in summer.

Visit Gisborne's arboretum; see the largest collection of the Northern Hemisphere trees & shrubs in the Southern Hemisphere.

Urewera National Park , accessed through Wairoa, Whakatane/Opotiki, is the place for adventure pursuits. Enjoy trout fishing, hunting, swimming, kayaking or walking around the beautiful Lake Waikaremoana Track, one of NZ's Great Walks.

Visit Tikitiki Church - one of the most ornate Maori churches in NZ.
