What to see in Gisborne

Gisborne, nestled on New Zealand's North Island east coast, is a captivating blend of coastal charm and cultural richness. Known for its pristine beaches, vibrant arts scene and status as the first city to greet the sunrise, Gisborne beckons visitors to explore its unique blend of natural beauty and Maori heritage.

Gisborne is blessed with some of New Zealand's most beautiful beaches, making it the perfect destination for sun-seekers and water enthusiasts. One of the most popular beaches in the area is Waikanae Beach, located just a short stroll from the city centre. With its golden sands, gentle waves and panoramic views of Poverty Bay, Waikanae Beach is an ideal spot for swimming, sunbathing and picnicking with family and friends. For those seeking a more secluded beach experience, Wainui Beach offers pristine sands, rugged cliffs and excellent surf breaks. Whether you're a seasoned surfer catching waves at Wainui Beach or a leisurely beachcomber strolling along the shoreline, Gisborne's beaches provide endless opportunities for relaxation and rejuvenation by the sea.

Gisborne is rich in Maori culture and history, with deep connections to the indigenous people of New Zealand. To learn more about the region's Maori heritage, visit the Tairawhiti Museum, which showcases a fascinating collection of artefacts, artworks and exhibits related to Maori culture, history and traditions. One of the highlights of any cruise to Gisborne is a trip to the Te Poho-o-Rawiri Marae, a traditional meeting ground and cultural centre for the local Maori community. Here, visitors can experience a traditional Maori welcome ceremony, known as a powhiri, and learn about Maori customs, protocols and spiritual beliefs from knowledgeable local guides.

Gisborne is renowned for its fresh local produce, award-winning wines and vibrant culinary scene. A visit to the Gisborne Farmers Market is a must-do for foodies, offering a tantalising array of fresh fruit, vegetables, artisanal products and gourmet delights sourced from local producers and growers. After exploring the market, indulge in a leisurely wine-tasting tour of Gisborne's renowned vineyards and wineries, which produce some of New Zealand's finest Chardonnay, Gewurztraminer and Viognier wines. From boutique cellar doors to sprawling estates with panoramic views of the surrounding countryside, Gisborne's wineries offer a delightful journey through the region's diverse terroir and winemaking traditions.
