The Historic Village: a diverse community hub
Located on 17th Avenue West, strolling through Tauranga’s Historic Village is like taking a step back into the early Tauranga with its collection of original and replica historic buildings, cobbled streets and lush green gardens.
Fast-forward to today and The Historic Village is a unique community that offers a multitude of experiences catering to a wide range of people, all in one location. The Village aims to:
- tell the story of the location’s culture and history in an engaging way
- provide a vibrant space for festivals, events, markets and activities
- offer a home to community groups that support the arts, culture and social needs of the community
- provide access to a diverse range of venues, hospitality and unique and complimentary shopping experiences.
Whether you want to host a meeting, get married, access a community service, have a bite to eat, some retail therapy or simply stroll around to admire the architecture, The Historic Village is the place to be. Don’t miss a walk through the Kopurererua Reserve – only a short distance away, as is the 17th Ave skatepark.
Open seven days a week with free entry, The Historic Village is located on 5.5 hectares of land that is owned and managed by Tauranga City Council.
