Gisborne aka Gissy. So what’s the verdict? UMMMMmmmm, well my advise would be if you are short on time or are not interested in surfing miss it. If you do surf however this is one for you.
What’s good? Strangely enough surfing. I took a couple of classes and really enjoyed it. They have a number of lovely beaches (just not as good as the Coromandel). Also go to Kaiti Hill at night for a lovely view of the city and to see the stars (breathtaking). Lastly Rockside (only accessible by a car ride), I didn’t get a chance to go but its suppose to be great fun. You can hire a tire and go down the rapids.
That’s about it friends. Other things you could do is the farmer market (had a weird icecream thing which was amazing), the museum and the historic walking tour of the town.
