Whether you are looking for fine dining, award winning wineries, walks and nature reserves, or spectacular gardens, Gisborne has it all.

Gisborne is the first city in the world to greet the sun each morning, and it has a reputation for great food, wine and surf beaches.

As the unofficial ‘Chardonnay Capital of New Zealand’, Gisborne has a comprehensive wine trail leading to boutique wineries.

Kaiti Beach is the site of Captain Cook’s first landing in New Zealand in 1769. Nearby is picturesque Te Poho O Rawiri Marae. If you’re interested in Maori culture, Gisborne is an essential port of call on your itinerary – old traditions are still evident in many parts of the city.
Gisborne’s marvellous surf beaches have attracted surfers since the early 1960’s. The coastline is affected by long ocean swells coming from both the east and south so you can usually catch a wave at one of the local beaches. Dawn surfing is a buzz because Gisborne is the first place in the world to see the sunrise each day.
