Why Tauranga?
Why Bethlehem?

Location, location, location

Tauranga ranks among New Zealand’s fastest-growing cities, thanks in part to the lifestyle pulling power of beaches and sunshine.

It also boasts the country’s largest export port1 primary industries that thrive on fertile soils and climate. Hence its position at one apex of the Auckland-Hamilton-Tauranga economic golden triangle.

Bethlehem Town Centre enjoys a high profile location alongside the region’s most rapidly growing, affluent areas.

Directly accessible from State Highway 2 – the main arterial route to Auckland. Vehicle numbers passing Bethlehem Town Centre are in excess of 36,000 cars per week.#

3,000 new residential houses are estimated to be constructed in the catchment area over the long term.

The main trade area includes over 1,500 retirement village units and significant residential development.

There’s a
lot to love

Don’t take our word for it, read what prominent local business people and residents have to say about the centre and surrounds.


left_quoteThe changes at this end of town are phenomenal in our sector. Years ago, Sanderson Group identified Bethlehem as a major growth area for retirement communities but even then we’ve been surprised by the speed it’s happened and we’re expecting to double our housing occupancy, over the next four years. The localised growth is not just retirees – we are seeing a lot of new houses and development in the area. There are constant changes occurring, always something happening.

It’s great to see this happening around us and Bethlehem Town Centre is certainly at the hub of it all.

“It feels more like a village than a mall. The shops are more individual and I like the openness of it. It’s so convenient to walk to and easy to park there – I use the book shop, the travel agent, the pharmacy, I love the gift shop and I was thrilled when my bank opened a branch there. Oh and I really like the shoe shop too.”
Retired Bethlehem resident, Robin Ayres


“My absolute favourite clothing store is in Bethlehem Town Centre. I like to make a bit of a day of it when I visit – have a coffee, visit the shoe shop, do the grocery shopping. It’s nice having some fresh air and space, somewhere that feels like a bit of a destination. It offers more boutiquey shopping, something different and you’re not cooped up inside.”
Papamoa teacher, Amanda Porter
