DESTINATION - TAURANGA, new zealand

Welcome to your comprehensive guide for travelling to the picturesque city of Tauranga, New Zealand, for the 2024 Surface Coatings Association of New Zealand (SCANZ) Convention. As we gather under the inspiring theme, “Navigating Towards a Better Future,” we are delighted to host you at the stunning Trinity Wharf Hotel, offering an unparalleled waterfront experience.

Whether you are travelling domestically or internationally, getting to Tauranga is convenient and enjoyable. Below, we outline various travel options to ensure your journey to the 2024 SCANZ Convention is as smooth and pleasant as possible.

By Air:
Tauranga Airport (TRG) is well-connected with several major airports in New Zealand, including Auckland, Wellington, and Christchurch.  However, Air New Zealand is the only airline that flies to Tauranga, so we recommend you book your flights early to get the best prices.  

By Road:
Tauranga is easily accessible by road, with scenic drives through New Zealand’s North Island. It is approximately a 2.5-hour drive from Auckland, and the roads are well-maintained and clearly signposted.

By Bus/Coach:
Several coach companies operate comfortable and affordable services connecting Tauranga with other major cities and towns across the North Island.

Local Transportation:
Once in Tauranga, you will find a range of transport options, including rental cars, taxis, public buses, and bicycle hire, making it easy to explore the city and surrounding areas.

Harbour King Room $305 Single / 

Harbour King Guest Rooms at Trinity Wharf Tauranga hotel are set right on or over the water edge.

The spacious work desk and free WiFi make this an excellent haven for those travelling to Tauranga for business or seeking a Bay Of Plenty holiday retreat. 

Settle in the comfortable wide arm chairs with a good book, or simply take timeout to relax by watching the light change on the water below.  At night you may just be lucky enough to catch a glimpse of the stingrays that often glide gracefully around the water’s edge, drawn in by the hotel's night lights.
