The 2018 - 2019 cruise ship season has begun!

Each year Mainstreet Downtown Tauranga runs a paid cruise ship shuttle service, bringing passengers from the Port to Tauranga City Centre. 

This season will see a 30% increase in passengers and ships, up from last year, so we are expecting a fantastic, busy cruise ship season from October 2018 - April 2019!

Our amazing Downtown Tauranga ambassadors greet passengers at the port and the waterfront each season. They answer questions and let tourists know where they can visit in the city centre. For example:

  • Go shopping
  • Dine out or have a coffee
  • Visit the Tauranga Art Gallery
  • Stroll through the Elms
  • Take a mural tour
  • Pose for a photo at the wings mural
  • See the seven poupou sculpture and waka
  • Explore Our Place
  • Enjoy our waterfront
  • Visit the Hairy Maclary sculptures
  • Meet some locals
  • Take a look at some of the redevelopment sites where exciting changes are happening in our city centre right now. Come back to see the changes!
