    You are most welcome to join in and contribute. Being fairly recently arrived in NZ I'm sure you'll have many views and thoughts that everyone would love to hear. Great to read that you're loving it in Tauranga and interesting to hear your comment about the financial side of things - a similar situation to several others on here and a very important one.

    Hope you'll stick around so we can pick your brains on the Tauranga area and other stuff.

    SHAMELESS PLUG ALERT!!!

    Do you want to buy a house in beautiful Pyes Pa?? Open2view - Property ID# 173890

    Tauranga is a fab place to live isn't it? I really miss it, but sadly the finances were never going to work for us, so made the decision to come home - just need to sell the house!!

    Hi were looking at that region, when you refer to finances are you refering to cost of living/property ?

    Hi John,

    Nice to see another Manc in Tauranga!! We moved over in November and after travelling around in a campervan for a month we decided to settle in Tauranga.

    Welcome to the forum,

    Clare
