Proprietors of Anaura Incorporation

The Incorporation plays an important role in the economic prosperity of the Gisborne/East Coast region. Situated on the East Coast of the North Island, approximately 20 kilometres north of Tolaga Bay, a leisurely hours' drive north of Gisborne City is Anaura Bay. An idyllic coastal spot, Anaura Bay is the home of the Proprietors of Anaura a Maori Incorporation, with major land interests and business ventures.

The view from the top of the hill approaching Anaura Bay is breath-taking. The blue Pacific Ocean with lace-like wavelets, rolling white sand, the dark island of Motuoroi looming in the background and the lush green pasture, are sites that draw hundreds of visitors to the sheltered bay each year.Retention of this environment whilst maintaining our business operations are paramount for Anaura.

One of our business interests is the Anaura Bay Motor Camp set in the centre of the coastal, beach front lands owned by the Incorporation, surrounded by our 3,200 hectares of mainly farm lands dominated with livestock farming.
