Katikati - Tauranga Business Case


Population: 3,460

Katikati is just half an hour’s drive from Tauranga. It is known as the Mural Town of New Zealand, with nearly 40 murals which adorn the walls of businesses throughout the town, depicting scenes of the region’s rich history. Katikati is also known as the gateway to the Bay of Plenty, and visitors are greeted with views of lush green pasture rolling down to the harbour.

Residents enjoy its coastal location with opportunities for sea fishing, sailing, water skiing and jet boating. It is also a great base for bush walks and tramping in the nearby Kaimai-Mamaku Forest Park.

As well as viewing the local murals, art and culture lovers can view open air art and sculpture, visit the Haiku Pathway, enjoy summer evening concerts featuring jazz, classical and contemporary music and sample the local fare at the Avocado Food & Wine Festival.
