Gisborne is where the Maori migratory waka Horouta first landed, and where Captain James Cook made his first New Zealand landfall in 1769. The region is also known as Tairawhiti, which means "the coast upon which the sun shines across the water".
Gisborne is the first city in the world to greet the sun each morning. For a life free from traffic, chaos and the stress of the big smoke, more and more people are opting for the freedom and lifestyle offered by Tairawhiti Gisborne. There are many good reasons to consider a move here: the beaches, the sunny climate, the open skies and warm, friendly community, easy access to the outdoors, sports facilities, cafés, wineries, great schools, fast internet and a growing job base. If you’re interested in Maori culture, Gisborne is perfect – old traditions are still evident in many parts of the city.
