The grand Port of Tauranga is New Zealand’s largest harbour, with over 2 million tonnes arriving and departing in trade each year. Because of this, the city is one of the main hubs for business, international trade, tourism and agriculture in the country. In spite of the bustling daily operations, the local council goes to great measures to ensure that the environmental impact is controlled and minimised.
The harbour plays a pivotal role within the wider community, and hosts many cherished events like the Port of Tauranga Half Ironman. Quite a spectacle and visible from the Mount’s peak, the harbour is held in high regards by locals and visitors alike.
