Places we visited


New Zealand

Many ex Bank Line folk will have very pleasant memories of visiting Tauranga in the Bay of Plenty. Situated under Mount Manganui, the local people were always exceptionally friendly and welcoming. Bank Line ships discharged their cargo from the US Gulf and other cargoes here, leading to lasting memories of many leisurely days ashore.
