Move to Tauranga
Tauranga is a great place to work and play. Many people move here for the active recreational lifestyle that this vibrant coastal city offers. Living here offers the benefits of a major city with beaches, cafés, restaurants and a range of sports and entertainment choices. At the same time, it has a relaxed feel – the daily commute just takes minutes, which means you can enjoy more time with friends and family or go for a surf after work.
The city centre offers a vibrant mix of residential areas, commercial and retail precincts, and cultural facilities. The business vibe throughout the week is replaced with a relaxed atmosphere on the weekend - there are markets and galleries to stroll through, families relax with the kids after saturday morning sport with fish and chips at the waterfront, and friends catch up at any of the cafes, wine bars and restaurants.
Outside of Tauranga city, there are a number of places to live and each town has its own unique character and feel. You could live in the mural town of Katikati with its arty feel, be near to the top fishing spot of Omokoroa or settle in the Te Puna countryside. Homes are competitively priced compared to the main metropolitan centres across New Zealand.
The population in Tauranga is booming and there are many work opportunities for skilled professionals looking to settle and build their careers. Many high-value, innovative, export focused businesses are based in the sub-region and they want to invest in staff. For those looking to start a business in Tauranga or expand their existing operations, there are significant competitive advantages to being based in the area, and Priority One can provide more information.
People who live in Tauranga love the community spirit. They come together to play sports, enjoy the beaches and water-based activities, attend festivals and concerts, dine at the many cafés and restaurants, attend church and be part of community groups.
For families, Tauranga offers high quality education across all levels. There are 67 schools offering a range of educational experiences to suit the individual child, no matter where you live – state, state-integrated, independent, and a recently opened Te Kura Kaupapa Māori school. Because Tauranga is such a sought after place to live, it attracts teaching staff of a high calibre.
