Welcome to Tairāwhiti Gisborne

Tairāwhiti Gisborne is the perfect place for a getaway. Far from crowds but as close to paradise as it gets. From sacred mountains to the shores of the vast Pacific Ocean, Tairāwhiti Gisborne is a stunning and unique corner of Aotearoa. Looking back to the arrival of great Polynesian voyagers, Captain James Cook’s landing and the very first encounter between Māori and European. Tairāwhiti Gisborne is a significant region steeped in New Zealand culture and history. As the first place in the world to see the sunrise each day, there’s plenty of time to explore unspoilt beaches and flourishing vineyards, connect with the welcoming people of this land and discover New Zealand in a whole new light. The land of the first light is a fun-filled destination that offers something for everyone.
