Tauranga is located in the northern part of the sweeping bay Bay of Plenty but is well protected by the island of Matakana Island. The name Tauranga comes from the Maori language and means something like 'a protected anchorage »

Due to its sheltered location Tauranga enjoys a mild and dry climate. This has made the city a popular place for retirees to settle in. Over the summer months, the population grows as the neighboring satellite city Mount Manganui is a popular vacation destination.

Tauranga is the fastest growing city in New Zealand. By the next census in 2006, the city's number of inhabitants have passed 100,000. This means that the city has quadrupled capita number of around 30 years. The growth is mainly due to retirees settle in the city, many in the suburb of Papamoa. Although population growth has been great, the city is represented in trade and business. The center is the size of a city of about half of Tauranga dimension.
