Did a ship tour here - microbrewery. It was very good. Thought there was more than one brewery but the lunch at Peppers (fish and chips) was huge and excellent! Smash Palace (stop 2) was incredible, would have loved to stay here all day! So glad we went here. Microbrewery was ok. 5 samples of beer. Read Less

Had a great tour of the city. Visited the Grey's Bush Scenic Reserve which is an untouched area in terms of trees and vegetation. It lets you see how the area looked before people arrived and cleared the land. We did the Tatapouri ... Read More

It lets you see how the area looked before people arrived and cleared the land. We did the Tatapouri Reef Stingray experience and got to feed stingrays in the wild. A unique experience. Read Less

Bigger port with some city shops. They have a beautiful parkway along the beach, with wonderful gardens. We also went on a tour here to see the stingrays and dolphins.......wonderful!

Train trip to Murawai. Very very good but hugely expensive booking through the ship excursions. Great on board commentary and we were entertained at the end of the line by students from the local school. Highly recommended.

Tourism volunteers are amazing doing their utmost to welcome and assist passengers. The location is small, exceptionally tidy but unfortunately not that much to offer. Napier preferred

Tenders are used to take cruisers into the port of Gisborne. Thankfully this is very well organised and we didn't have to wait for long. Free shuttle buses were waiting at the end of the dock but if you wanted a nice stroll it would have taken about 10 - 15 minutes to get to the main area of Gisborne. Lots of friendly locals and funky cafes and stores to look at. There was also a market near the free bus drop off. Unfortunately the queue to get back on the tenders to re-board the ship was horrendously long. Lucky for us there was a Fish and Chip shop opposite so we went there for the best Fish and Chips with the freshest fish and watched the line slowly crawl along. The cruise line did provide water to those at the front of the queue. Read Less
