New Plymouth

— 2 nights
Where other cities run, New Plymouth prefers to stroll.
Change things up with these side-trips from New Plymouth: Opunake Beach (in Opunake) and Stratford (Fenton Street Art Collective & Forgotten World Highway). There's lots more to do: go for a walk through New Plymouth Coastal Walkway, kick back and relax at Oakura Beach Holiday Park, stroll through Oakura Beach, and get to know the resident critters at Pukekura Park.

For ratings, other places to visit, reviews, and more tourist information, go to the New Plymouth trip planner.

Wellington to New Plymouth is an approximately 2.5-hour flight. You can also drive; or take a bus. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 18th (Sun) to allow time to fly back home.

Under the watchful eye of Mount Taranaki, wild Taranaki Region welcomes visitors seeking an adventure holiday. The rugged coast boasts great surfing opportunities, while the quaint alpine towns offer slower-paced Taranaki vacation ideas. Head down one of the region's many rivers for a day of rafting or kayaking, or enjoy a gentle stroll along the coast. Then, of course, there's the small matter of the mountain, encouraging you to climb it (or at least venture up a little bit of the way).
