Tauranga is a coastal metropolitan city in the Bay of Plenty region and the fifth most populous city in New Zealand, with around 3% of the national population. It was inhabited by Maori late in the 13th century, colonized by Europeans in the early 19th century, and was constituted as a city in 1963.

The city lies in the north-western corner of the Bay of Plenty, on the south-eastern periphery of Tauranga Harbour and prolongs over an area of 141.91 square kilometers and encompasses the communities of Bethlehem, Greerton, Matua, Otumoetai, Papamoa.

Let's drill down a little more into it, Tauranga is one of New Zealand's main centers for business, international commerce, culture, fashion, and horticultural science. The Port of Tauranga is New Zealand's largest port in terms of gross export cargo and efficiency. Tauranga is one of New Zealand's fastest-growing metropolia and due to its rapid population growth, Tauranga has evolved to be New Zealand's fifth-largest city, surpassing Dunedin and the Napier-Hastings urban areas.
