The climate of Gisborne (New Zealand)
Gisborne is located on the east coast of the North Island. It was named after Governor William Gisborne. Gisborne is the most eastern city in the world and because of this the first city in the world to greet the morning light. Gisborne is the place where New Zealandís discoverer Thomas Cook first set foot ashore. A monument has been placed in his honour to commemorate this fact. Midway Beach, Wainui Beach and Makorori Beach are very popular with wind surfers. Mainly because of the reef that is located offshore. Gisborne has a dry and warm climate with many hours of sunshine per year. Summers are warm. During the day temperatures are 23 degrees Celsius on average. Winters are mild with temperatures of 12 degrees Celsius on average. The mild climate, in combination with rich alluvial soil makes for an ideal location to grow corn, grapes, citrus fruit, kiwis and tropical fruits.
