Situated in the sunny eastern coast of New Zealand’s North Island, the Bay of Plenty really is just that, offering vast golden sand beaches, bush clad mountains, lush farmlands and more. Its pleasant climate means that the area has become a favourite for holiday makers, retirees and those looking for a different lifestyle outside of the main cities.
The Whakatāne community is vibrant and engaged while being close to Tauranga, New Zealand’s fastest growing city. There is a wide-range of schooling options throughout the area and the stunning region offers New Zealand’s recently voted favourite beach, ancient forests and is blessed with breath-taking landscapes and rich Māori culture. We showcase the perfect place to explore a wide range of nature-based pursuits – you don’t have to forsake your career either, in fact why not enhance it with a better work-life balance.
