Kawerau, in the heart of the Bay of Plenty, is where the living is easy.

If you’re keen to escape crazy traffic and the general bustle and cost of busy city life, then Kawerau could well be the place to provide a perfect pace of life.

It’s a prime spot for getting in touch with the great outdoors. This town resides under the watchful eye of Putauaki (Mt Edgecumbe), with lakes, beaches, forests, thermal areas, and the mighty Tarawera River right on its doorstep.

All this without any sense of isolation, as Kawerau is less than an hour east of Rotorua, just over an hour from Tauranga and only 30 minutes south-west of Whakatane and Ohope beach.

It’s a well-planned town. Plenty of parks and reserves, wide tree-lined streets, a shopping centre, and a year-round swimming/spa pool complex are all part of its appeal. The local council is supportive, and the pulp and paper sector ensures economic vibrancy.

Kawerau can boast of friendly locals and a strong community spirit. The strength of its multicultural background and rich Maori heritage is a proud characteristic of the town.

A welcoming spirit, an easy lifestyle, varied scenic beauty, mild winters and wonderfully warm summers, affordable living… Kawerau. Sounds like a great place to call home.

Kawerau enjoys hot summers and mild winters.
Rainfall is spread throughout the year, though it is not uncommon to experience a drought during summer.
