Gisborne Flights GuideNew Zealand has no shortness of beautiful cities and unique vistas, and Northeastern Gisborne is no exception. Gisborne, home to a large Maori population, is a great place to explore not only the natural wonder of the country, but also the native cultures of New Zealand. Gisborne sits on Poverty Bay, allowing for scenic waterside views, and sandy beaches popular for both swimming and surfing.
Gisborne Airport runs frequent flights to Auckland and Wellington, as well as to the other provinces of New Zealand. From Auckland, flights to Australia are frequent and easy. Though Gisborne City does feature a vintage railway, travel is confined to different parts of the Gisborne region, and rail travel is not particularly convenient for reaching the rest of the country.
Like many other parts of New Zealand, Gisborne is a generally warm place. The region gets a lot of sunshine hours, particularly in the summer (meaning December to March), but rain, when it does fall, is particularly heavy, making it less warm, on the whole, than other parts of the country. Though New Zealand is a place chock full of natural wonder, both tourists and Kiwis themselves are well aware of the fact. Best to avoid summer holidays (the months of December, January, and February) as they will likely be the most crowded in the region. Though there is no "low season," June, July and August are great times to visit for a slightly lower amount of crowds.
