Shopping

Just 50 metres from your doorstep at Academy Motor Inn you’ll find a small shopping complex that can cater for all your daily needs.  Enjoy a lazy afternoon sipping coffee at 16th Avenue Café, meander through Tauranga’s Floral Studio and select a gift for that special occasion, sample a selection of fresh fruit and vegetables from Bay Produce, or visit Gregg’s Pharmacy for all your personal needs.

For those enjoying a longer stay at Academy Motor Inn, Countdown (600m) is only a five minute walk away.  Here you will find all your daily or weekly grocery needs are met.  If you’re looking for a bargain, you can try Pack ‘n Save which is also within walking distance of Academy Motor Inn.

Fraser Cove which is 1.5km's down the road also offers a large range of shopping and food outlets

Tauranga Central offers a number of shopping options ranging from bookstores, pharmacies and homewards to clothing boutiques and eateries.  A little further afield, Bayfair Shopping Mall offers keen shoppers everything from gifts and fashion boutiques to supermarkets and large department stores, all under the one roof.  It also features a 550-seat food court as well as small café’s dotted throughout the mall.

Mount Maunganui Township, only a 10 minute drive from Academy Motor Inn, offers a laid-back café scene, some exquisite dining, interesting craft and souvenir shops, and some fabulous local artworks.
