Discover Aotearoa-New Zealand’s greatest treasure. First to see the sun rise of each new day and the site of the first meetings between Maori and European, in Tairāwhiti Gisborne the , present and future meld into one.
Sitting proudly on the edge of the Pacific Ocean, Tairāwhiti is te reo Maori for “the coast upon which the sun shines across the water”.
While this couldn’t be truer, there is so much more to discover here. Tairāwhiti is more than a name, it’s a feeling of manaaki (generosity) and aroha (love) you won’t find anywhere else.
So haere mai (welcome), this is Tairāwhiti Gisborne, where our taonga (treasure), is your taonga too.
