About Gisborne

Tucked away from the rest of the New Zealand on the east coast of the North Island, Gisborne is a place of sun, surf and relaxation. Locals pride themselves on their chilled-out lifestyles and slower pace of life. Gisborne is historically important as the site where Captain Cook first came ashore from his ship the Endeavour in 1769.  The population is almost equally split between Maori and European residents.
