Ōpōtiki is in the beautiful Bay of Plenty and stretches 160km along the region’s coastline all the way from Whangaporaoa on the eastern tip of the North Island, inland through stunning native forests, farms and orchards, and down through our rivers and beautiful valleys into harbours and estuaries.

The ocean plays a big part in part in our lives - for recreation and kaimoana, and for business. We've got new, world-leading off shore aquaculture and mussel processing, and it's booming. Ōpōtiki’s also famous for Kiwifruit and avocado orchards. And Aotearoa's biggest macadamia nut farm is here too... which tells you something about how great the climate is.

With thousands of hectares of native bush, the mānuka industry is strong, and so is hunting and freshwater fishing for recreation, and for regular household meals. New industries are popping up, some led by our three Iwi, some by groups of locals, and others by businesses that have seen the creative potential here. One venture is a big new marina with industrial sites around it which will attract whole new opportunities for business and recreation alike.

Ōpōtiki might be quiet - but it's not isolated! We're about 40 minutes from Whakatane, and less than two hours to Tauranga or to Gisborne. Here, it's all about whānau family, and community. It's about attachment to place and people. And fun, with plenty of competition too on the sports fields or with kapa haka. Our cycle and walking trail networks are growing, and we've got active clubs and organisations.

There are lots of work opportunities. You can have a well-paying job, behind a desk if that is what you are after, or outdoors in our amazing primary industries, but you can also try something new, and make your own path. Innovation and Kiwi ingenuity is well respected here! You can do things differently, and really have great work life balance.
