Gisborne is the first city in the world to see the sun of each new day.
Gisborne - known as "Tairawhiti" - the light shines on the water - is a great place to relax and take your mind of big city "first-world" problems.
There's many cafe's restaurants and bars - and the internet access (at least for us) is reliable and reasonably fast.
The region is home to around 45,000 people and is around 3 hours from Tauranga and Rotorua and 2.5 hours from Napier.
Stunning uncrowded beaches - great weather - and great wine all conspire to keep us here...
