Kawerau is a town in the Bay of Plenty region of the North Island. The town is situated 100 km south-east of Tauranga and 58 km east of Rotorua. It is the seat of, and the sole town in, the Kawerau District Council.
Often affectionately referred to as the “jewel” in the Eastern Bay of Plenty crown, Kawerau is renowned for its natural and picturesque beauty, plus an idyllic lifestyle.
Kawerau is nestled at the foot of Mt Putauaki (Mt Edgecumbe), a volcano which became dormant about 1000 years ago, and with the crystal clear and trout filled Tarawera River right on our doorstep, Kawerau is the obvious first choice as the outdoor and adventure playground of the Eastern Bay.
Home to the spectacular Tarawera Falls, tramping, fishing, golf, biking, all water sports, horse riding, Kawerau has it all to see and do.
Being close to all the best beaches in the Eastern Bay; sun, surf and sand is within easy reach, and the beautiful fresh water lakes of Rotoma, Tarawera, and Okataina are only from 15 minutes away. Kawerau offers visitors an outstanding range of activity options to make a stay as quiet or as busy as they like.
Kawerau regularly tops the summer daily maximum with an average reported temperature of 28.3’ C.
With the nearby Norske Skog Tasman pulp and paper mill nearby the timber processing industry is very much an integral part Kawerau’s history. Kawerau is the newsprint and paper tissue capital of New Zealand of which the town is very proud, with the mill contributing significantly to the overall New Zealand national economy. There is a diversity of other commercial activity within Kawerau, including substantial engineering and commercial maintenance operations.
