DirectionsShow MapHide Map
As we're in the city centre of Tauranga, we're very easy to find. We're only a 2 minute walk away from the bus station. If you head to the water front and take a right, you can't miss us!
We are located right in between the bars, restaurants and cafes in the heart of the city. Our position with stunning harbour views makes us very hard to beat especially having a huge balcony on the second floor with waterfront views, overlooking the strand with all the hustle and bustle below us. The Backpackers is only a minutes' walk from the bus station and information centre, central to all banks and shops and is only a short drive to the airport and the golden sandy beach, Mount Maunganui.
