Gisborne Region

Travel Guide Oceania Polynesia New Zealand North Island Gisborne Region



The Gisborne region of New Zealand, which is also known as East Cape, is located at the north east of North Island. The region and the City of Gisborne were both named after William Gisborne, who was Colonial Secretary of New Zealand from 1869 to 1872.



Getting There

By Plane

Gisborne Airport (GIS) offers flights to/from Auckland, Hamilton, Wellington, Napier, Palmerston North, Rotorua and Tauranga.



Getting Around

By Car

Some of the other options to rent cars include the following companies:

Before you rent, ask the rental company if they have any relocation deals. Even in high season there can be a bottle neck of cars and campers at certain locations that the hire company is willing to offer discounted sometimes free rental to move the vehicle, possibly right to where you want to go. The only down side is the vehicle often has a time restriction, but even this is negotiable, depending on how much the rental company needs the vehicle moved.
