New Plymouth (Taranaki Region) INTRODUCTION
Situated on the rugged west coast between Auckland and Wellington, the Taranaki region is where two great worlds – art and the great outdoors – collide.
Here, you can surf the waves and ski the slopes all in one day, or follow New Plymouth’s 13km coastal promenade through a mesmerizing kinetic art display.
Known just as much for its black sand beaches as it is for award-winning galleries, festivals and gardens, there’s a multitude of things keen to claim your interest. If sports and activity are more up your alley, a trip along Surf Highway 45 follows 100km of coastal stretch, and encounters some of the area’s 12 world-class surf breaks.
Or, take to New Zealand’s most climbed mountain, Mount Taranaki, for hikes through lush rainforests and cascading falls.
Just remember, a trip to the summit of this beautiful volcano requires proper equipment and plenty of planning – it’s a lot higher than it looks!.
