Eastland is steeped in Maori culture. The main town Gisborne, produces top-class Chardonnay and is also the first place in the world to greet the sunrise.
If you have a strong interest in Maori culture - and you love food, wine and surf beaches - Gisborne is a city you won't want to miss.
Opotiki is a great place to slow down and get into the mood of Eastland. There are beaches to wander, forests to explore and rivers to ride.
Enclosed by the pristine native forest of Te Urewera National Park, Lake Waikaremoana is one of the North Island's most beautiful wilderness escapes.
Wairoa is a friendly place to buy supplies before you venture into the wilds of Te Urewera National Park. You’ll love the wooden lighthouse.
From the town of Ruatoria you can plan to climb Mount Hikurangi, the first point on mainland New Zealand to see the sunrise each day.
Stop in Te Araroa to admire our oldest pohutukawa tree, then climb up to the lighthouse on the most eastern point of New Zealand.
