Welcome to Bayleys Gisborne

Gisborne on the East Coast of the North Island provides a safe anchorage halfway between the ports of Auckland and Wellington. The city, as indeed is the whole region, is a picturesque, friendly, and hospitable district with a multicultural population - epitomising all that is best about provincial New Zealand.
The warm, sun-filled climate reflects it the region’s seaside proximity, and complements its rich soils, bountiful harvests, miles of sandy beaches and resource-rich oceans.

Stretching from Mahia Peninsula in the south and around East Cape to the Eastern Bay of Plenty in the north, the Gisborne district is famous for its beautiful coastline where surfers devour the swells, and its rivers - where fly fishing, canoeing and white water rafting are some of the other water-based activities on offer. It’s also where you’ll see Bayleys signs proudly marketing some of the regions finest homes, farms, and business real estate opportunities.

Bayleys Gisborne principal James MacPherson heads the sales team, which includes specialists in all sectors of real estate – from farming and lifestyle, special projects, commercial and industrial, through to hotel and motel leasing brokerage, residential, waterfront and coastal property.




Gisborne lies on the east coast and is famed for its Chardonnay-producing vineyards 

Imagine being the first person in the world to see the sun each day. If you're up early enough, and you live in Gisborne, you can be.

Located on the sunny east coast of the north island, Gisborne  (population 45,000) is one of the sunniest places in New Zealand with an average 2,200 hours of sunshine annually.

It also boasts a strong Maori culture, the largest native forest in the north island, some of the best surf waves in New Zealand and excellent trout fishing.

For a taste of the quiet life – and some very nice local wines – this part of Gisborne is definitely worth more than a second thought.
