Opotiki District Council July Panui

With miles and miles of open sea, 160 kilometres of coastline, 13 clean, fast flowing rivers and 11,200 hectares of native bush and scrubland, the Opotiki District is the perfect home for a community that appreciates and enjoys outdoor activities and the natural environment. The district comprises 25% of the Bay of Plenty region and contains 50% of the Bay of Plenty coastline.

A little under 8,500 people live in the Opotiki District.  Each year more than 30,000 visitors experience the environment that we are lucky enough to call home.   Just under half of the resident population lives in the Opotiki township with the remainder living in smaller outlying communities. There are 20 marae in the district, which are a focal point for local communities, along with a number of strong farming, lifestyle and coastal settlements.
