Te Moananui ā Toi ׀ Coastal Bay of Plenty has a rich cultural heritage and lively art scene that will engage, entertain and inspire you.

Creativity can be found everywhere – from the large-scale painted murals that adorn Katikati’s streets to the vibrant graffiti art that has transformed empty walls in Tauranga’s CBD. Musicians and artists have made places like the Historic Village and the Jam Factory their own, and small town galleries showcase the masterpieces that are created in people’s homes and backyards every day.

We invite you to explore the Bay’s art, culture and heritage so you can deepen your understanding of our past, and get excited for what is to come as our region continues to grow and evolve.
