Activities

There’s heaps to do in Gizzy and along the East Coast. There’s a strong cultural influence through Kapahaka and Maori visual arts, with works commissioned by the council and dotted around the city. Our white sandy beaches, prestine waters and surf breaks are world famous. The East Coast is home to a thriving wine and cider industry, so having fun is important to the locals! Here’s a few activities…

We’re the first city in the world to see the sun, so catch a sunrise, its free!

Visit a local winery, brewery or cidery 

The fishing and diving is awesome along the coast, here’s some local operators 

Hire a bike, the region is flat and pretty easy to get around 

There’s some amazing resturants serving up local cuisine, a couple of our favourites for cheap eats are Captain Morgans, Sofra, Ngati Porou Seafoods, London St Fish n Chips and Cambodia Kai. Grab a good coffee and kai from Cafe 84, PBC cafe, Verve or Food 4 Thought. Or check out Soho, The Works, Gisborne Wine Centre or Peppers on the Beach for a special night out
