Darton Field Café and Bar
Welcome to the only place in Tairāwhiti where you can enjoy fresh food, great coffee, local wines and beers, all while getting a close up view of the planes taking off and landing.
Locals’ tip: try a slice of the world-famous-in-Tairāwhiti banana loaf.
The café is named after Darton Field, Gisborne’s first aerodrome, which opened on this site in 1930.
It’s open for all Air New Zealand departing flights starting bright and early every morning, seven days a week.
