We take pride in our warm, welcoming culture here at The Incubator and we want everyone to feel supported when visiting our spaces. The streets are wide, our spaces all have ramp access, and the Historic Village have a baby changing table, one disability toilet and we have an allocated disability carpark. As an organisation that operates with such diverse areas of society and with many different types of people, we hope to help support everyone equally when it comes to accessing our spaces.


Unfortunately, not all of our spaces are accessible but please know that we are actively working with the Tauranga City Council (our landlords) to develop and improve these areas where it lacks. The Incubator does have an accessibility coordinator, Melanie who is happy to support you with any further details. Please get in contact with her directly if you have any special requests or queries by emailing
