Where other cities run, New Plymouth prefers to stroll.
Explore New Plymouth's surroundings by going to Hawera (Naumai Park, Tawhiti Museum, &more), Egmont National Park (Dawson Falls & Mount Taranaki) and Fenton Street Art Collective (in Stratford). There's lots more to do: learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at Pukekura Park, snap pictures at Te Rewa Rewa Bridge, explore the galleries of Govett-Brewster Art Gallery / Len Lye Centre, and get answers to all your questions at Puke Ariki.

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).
