All About Kawerau

Kawerau is located in the Eastern Bay of Plenty, in the middle of the North Island of New Zealand. Kawerau is at the centre of a district rich in fresh air, great bush walks and pristine New Zealand landscape.

Founded in 1953, Kawerau is one of the youngest towns in New Zealand. It has been well planned with a shopping centre, plenty of parks and reserves, wide tree-lined streets and a leisurely pace of life. It is close to beaches, lakes and forestry and offers a unique place to rest and relax.

Kawerau is known for its friendly people and strong community spirit. The strength of Kawerau's multicultural background is a proud characteristic along with its rich Maori heritage. The area's wonderful climate and varied scenic beauty make it a great affordable lifestyle option.
