Trip Planner: South Pacific / New Zealand / North Island / Taranaki Region / Stratford / Forgotten World Highway
Drive into the pioneering past and diverse natural wonders of the Taranaki region on Forgotten World Highway. Following what was once an ancient Maori trade path, the road leaves from Stratford and winds through 155 km (96 mi) of the rich and awe-inspiring landscape of Egmont National Park. Along the way you'll catch views of Mount Taranki, a stunning volcano stretching up into the sky. Also look out for historical settlements in among the native forest, telling stories of the route's past life. Numerous picnic stops and photo ops line the road as it weaves into a forgotten history of mankind's relationship with the natural world. Plan my Stratford trip by asking Inspirock to come up with tips and suggestions.
