Tauranga Top Picks

Looking for the very best things to do in Tauranga? We have selected the Top Picks across many types of activities. If you only have a short time in Tauranga, or only want to sample the best things to do, then you are in the right place!

For families we recommend the Mount Maunganui Hot Pools or the Baywave Aquatic Centre. Or if you’d rather keep the family dry, then Dolphin Watching and the Spring Loaded Fun Park will keep you “semi-dry”. For free activities there are many spectacular walks including Waikareao Estuary and most notably the Mount Maunganui Base Walk. Te Puna Quarry Park is also worth a visit with families, and nature lovers alike.

For those with discerning taste, you can’t go past the Mills Reef Winery. This award winning estate showcases the best wine, and fine dining the area has to offer. The Elms Mission House is a slice of local history, and will transport you back to yesteryear, as will the Classic Flyers Aviation Museum. To find out more simply click on the images below.
