For Australian businesses looking to relocate, there are many advantages to setting up in New Zealand. Tauranga, located on the east coast in the centre of the North Island, just over two hours drive from Auckland, is a great spot to base your business without the costs of living and working in a large city.

Tauranga is home to many innovative, high-value, export-focused businesses and a strong, supportive business community.  It’s central location makes for an easy drive to Auckland and Hamilton and only a short flight to Wellington, Christchurch and other cities around New Zealand. Plus, Tauranga is home to New Zealand’s largest port by volume so it’s easy to reach Australia and Asia directly plus markets further afield.  60% of local businesses are within a 10km radius of the port and the average travel time across Tauranga to the port is only 15 minutes. As an added bonus, Tauranga’s roads are around 60% less congested than Auckland’s.

Tauranga’s easy market access and excellent infrastructure are only a couple of reasons to do business here. Tauranga’s ultimate bottom line – profit, people, place and potential – uncovers more of these reasons from attractive labour and training options, to affordable property, excellent business networks, strong regional growth supported by R&D, development and investment and the benefits of an active lifestyle in a beautiful, sunny coastal area.
