Welcome to the Tauranga & the Wider Bay of Plenty Region

About the Region

The Bay Of Plenty is a high growth area because of the quality of life it offers. The large curving bay of golden sand beaches measuring 259 kilometres was first named by Captain James Cook while circumnavigating New Zealand in 1769. He dubbed it The Bay of Plenty after noticing the abundant food supplies at many Māori villages there, in stark contrast to the earlier observations he had made in other areas.

Tauranga is the bay’s largest city with an estimated 128,000 residents in 2014.The Port of Tauranga at Mt Maunganui is New Zealand’s largest port. Pristine beaches spread eastward from Mt Maunganui to Papamoa, Maketu, Pukehina and Pikowai.

Tauranga was the birth place of Generation Homes in 1997, and the company has been instrumental in the early development of Papamoa in particular.

Tauranga is served by its own hospital, has hundreds of schools in the area and four tertiary education institutes – including a campus of the University of Waikato.

Papamoa has undergone huge growth in recent years, along with areas north of Tauranga such as Omokoroa, which should ensure that the Tauranga Generation Homes team are kept busy helping new customers into quality houses for many years to come.

Our Tauranga Regional Partner - Lyndon Marshall

Like many of our regional directors Lyndon has a long history in the building industry. Lyndon spent 15 years as a builder and owned and managed Skyline Buildings and Garages for four years before becoming the first Generation Homes Joint Venture partner in 2008. 

Since then Lyndon has overseen phenomenal growth in his home patch.

To do this has required a huge combination of energy, practicality and nous. He has funnelled all of his prior life and business experience into this task. Prior to joining the building industry he was a dairy farm manager who achieved a nationally recognised top 10 per cent production figure for his farm.

Lyndon is a staunch family man and proud Tauranga resident who has integrity, honesty and practicality – vital qualities that represent Generation Homes.
