Centrally located in the heart of the Bay of Plenty and surrounded by an abundance of natural resources, the Kawerau district offers a unique lifestyle and business environment.

Kawerau is renowned for its friendliness, great sense of community, wonderful climate and strong Maori heritage, and is one of New Zealand's youngest towns. Founded in 1953, the township has been well-planned, with plenty of parks and reserves and wide, tree-lined streets. It offers a leisurely pace of life.

Kawerau is within easy reach of lakes, beaches, forests, major cities and thermal areas and, with the Tarawera River on its doorstep, is a popular outdoor and adventure playground.
