Puna is zoned rural - a green belt ensuring it's residents
have the advantage of country-living close to the coast and just
10 minutes travel from Tauranga city. The high rolling ground of
the Minden forms a grandstand looking down to
the intense horticulture and life-style blocks that cover the lowland coastal
strip. Te Puna's fast growth is challenging strategists to
preserve the wonderful environment and lifestyle that all enjoy.
To the south, the boundary is the Wairoa River and the Te Puna Stream is the
northern border. Through the centre is the
busy State Highway 2 road and the East Coast Main Trunk railway.
A very diverse region with warm, friendly people that will make
your visit a pleasure.
