Things to do in Gisborne Region
Rainy days, sunny days and days in between, no matter the weather there are always activities.
Dome Bar and Cinema
If there’s one place we take family and friends when they come to visit, this is it. Tuck into a bean bag and watch a movie as if you’re in a giant slumber party. We enjoy the visual feast as much as the food and drinks at this iconic place. It’s also known for its really fun shindigs.
Gisborne Farmers Market
The best place to bump into friends and stock up on local goodies. If you’re lucky enough to catch this awesome little market make sure to grab some BeeBox honey and freshly picked flowers from Moose Cottage.
Literally right next door to us you can get up close and personal with majestic sea creatures. We suggest booking well in advance for their guided Reef Ecology Tour. You’ll leave with a few new aquatic friends for sure.
For a cheap thrill, venture out to this natural rock slide equipped with a boogie board or inflatable. If you get cold feet, no
worries. It’s equally entertaining to watch others laughing their way down this very popular attraction. Approximately a 55min Drive from Tatapouri Bay.
