There's something amazing about the quality of the air when you stand near the base of a shimmering cascade like Kaiate Falls or Whataroa Falls.
Craving a bit of time by the ocean? Go for a leisurely walk and add to your seashell collection at Omokoroa Beach.
You probably know about its best shopping centres or squares, but don't forget that Tauranga has some excellent natural sights too. Karangahake Gorge and Mount Maunganui are two to consider. For those who haven't quite had their fill, Mauao and Mount Maunganui Summit Track are two more worth visiting.
Stroll the halls and appreciate the carefully organised collections at the Classic Flyers NZ. You'll definitely find something to spark your curiosity.
Immerse yourself in the interesting collection of artworks on display at the Tauranga Art Gallery. If anything jumps out at you, see if you can learn more about the artist.
Take a step back in time with a visit to The Elms Mission House and Brain Watkins House. They're excellent places to get a real understanding of Tauranga's history. If that doesn't satisfy your inner history nerd, continue on to the Monmouth Redoubt and Mission Cemetery.
No matter what you believe in, there's something about spiritual spaces that soothes the soul. Huria Marae is a must-do for travellers seeking some serenity.
Many travellers put Minden Lookout towards the top of their travel list. You won't want to be left out of all the fun, so make sure you slot it into your schedule too.
You might visit Mount Surf Museum only wanting to buy some essential supplies, but you'll probably leave with lots more than that.
Soothe stress, work out and have some fun at the same time by spending a day on the fairways at the Tauranga Golf Club.
When you are exploring new cities, it's sometimes the less flashy sites that'll replay in your memories once you're home. A couple of places which fit that bill in Tauranga are Blake Park and the Tauranga South Bowling Club. Adrenalin Forest and the blokart Recreation Park are also worth considering.
Itching to climb under the covers (and perhaps acquaint yourself with the mini bar) at your Tauranga hotel? No worries. There are more than 51 places to crash featured on lastminute.com.au.
You don't have to break the bank to have a decent night's rest in Tauranga.

Always a lovely place to stay and lovely staff. Stunning view of the harbor from our room, the only downside was that we could hear the people in the room next door.
26 Aug. - 27 Aug.

The location was excellent, facilities were in good condition and it was nice and quiet. The only issue at all that I had was the bedroom window which faced the internal stairs(atrium). The internal stairs are brightly lit all night and the blinds on the windows are inadequate at blocking out this ...
19 Aug. - 20 Aug.

25 Aug. - 26 Aug.
Hotel need a designated smoking area. And the range of alcohol was very limited. Thank you
