A classic Kiwi bach has popped up in Tauranga's city centre, celebrating iconic Kiwi lifestyle.

During November and December visitors to the city, tourists and locals would be able to enjoy the bach and join in celebrating what makes New Zealanders proud to be "Kiwi".

Mainstreet Tauranga, with Guthrie Bowron, Black Chilli, Media Works and Tauranga Rotary were behind the mini bach with the aim of "creating a destination in our city centre for the enjoyment of all."

Christmas decorations would be added to the bach come December, turning it into Santa's Kiwi Bach.
