Wairoa is a stunning town on the banks of the Wairoa River south of Gisborne. It's the southern gateway to the Bay of Plenty and a centre for water-based activities including yachting and waterskiing on the river, fishing, and boating on spectacular Lake Waikaremoana.

Wairoa is also nearby to the remarkable wilderness of the Te Urewera National Park.
