Discover the historic sites of scenic Tauranga during this orientation tour of the city.

Your drive takes you across Tauranga Harbour to Tauranga, the principal city of the Bay of Plenty. Tauranga's founders, a group of 19th-century missionaries, left a legacy of well-planned parks and gardens for the benefit of future residents and visitors. You will pass by the Monmouth Redoubt en route to the Elms Mission House, built in 1847 by Archdeacon Brown. Upon arrival, you will take a guided walking tour through this historic Georgian-styled home and surrounding gardens.

Enjoy a scenic drive through Tauranga and past Gate Pa, where the last major battle between the British and Maori people took place in 1864. From the Minden Lookout, you will take in panoramic views and photo opportunities over the Bay of Plenty.
