Taneatua is a small town in the Bay of Plenty region of New Zealand's North Island. The town is located southeast of Pekatahi, a similarly small settlement; Whakatane is the nearest significantly sized town. Just to the southwest of Taneatua, the Whakatane River and Waimana Rivers meet. The Whakatane River itself flows to the west of Taneatua, while the Waimana River is south of the township.
State Highway 2 passes through Taneatua on its route between Opotiki to Edgecumbe. The Taneatua Branch railway terminates in Taneatua. Formerly considered part of the East Coast Main Trunk Railway, it is now a branch line off the main line from Hawkens Junction, northwest of Edgecumbe. The line is currently disused and mothballed.
