Kawerau is centrally situated in the Eastern Bay of Plenty near to all the larger towns and precincts of Rotorua (45 minutes through one of NZ’s most picturesque drives), Mt Maunganui and Tauranga (one hour’s drive along the beautiful Bay of Plenty coastline), Taupo (about one hour 40 minutes), Whakatane (25 minutes), and Hamilton (two hours).

Two airports are in close proximity; Whakatane, 25 minutes away; and Rotorua which also has flights to Sydney, only 35 minutes away. Because of our closeness to the larger towns and cities, many decide to shop in those centres.

The town has a relatively small retail shopping area, however all services are provided. There is a supermarket, pharmacy, post office, bakeries and cafés, along with a host of other services.
