Places to visit in Gisborne

Visit-East-Cape-Lighthouse-with-KING-Rentalcars.jpg
East Cape Lighthouse

East Cape Lighthouse is a lighthouse sited on Otiki Hill above East Cape, the easternmost point on the North Island of New Zealand. It is owned and operated by Maritime New Zealand. The lighthouse was originally constructed on nearby East Island. However the island was difficult to access and proved to be susceptible to earthquakes and subsequent landslips. In 1920 a decision was made to relocate the light to the mainland and in April 1922, the light was extinguished and then relit at its current location in December of that year.


Visit-Te-Pourewa-with-KING-Rentalcars.jpg
Te Pourewa

Te Pourewa is so much more than a beautiful carving. Big, bold and brilliant to see lit up at night, the 12-metre high sculpture on Hoturangi Maunga in Uawa/Tolaga Bay was resurrected in October 2019 to commemorate Tahitian ancestor, navigator and priest Tupaia and his arrival at Opoutama on the Endeavour in 1769. This is a stunning traditional Māori art form that's also an important conversation piece on the dual heritage and shared future of Aotearoa New Zealand.

Eastwoodhill Arboretum

Eastwoodhill is the national arboretum of New Zealand.  It covers 131 hectares (1.31 km2) and is located 35 km northwest of Gisborne, in the hill country of Ngatapa.  It was founded in 1910 by William Douglas Cook. Of all the arboreta of the Southern Hemisphere, Eastwoodhill Arboretum is said to have the largest collection of trees of the temperate climate zone of the Northern Hemisphere. It includes some 4,000 different trees, shrubs and climbers, including 170 species currently on the IUCN world endangered species list.

Tolaga Bay Wharf

Tolaga Bay is both a bay and small town on the East Coast of New Zealand's North Island located 45 kilometres northeast of Gisborne and 30 kilometres south of Tokomaru Bay. A Category One Heritage NZ Site and one of the top 100 historic sites to visit in the country, Tolaga Bay Wharf is believed to be the longest wharf of its type in the Southern Hemisphere, standing where Captain Cook sailed to meet the Te Aitanga a Hauiti tribe when the Endeavour first reached New Zealand.
