New Plymouth

Where other cities run, New Plymouth prefers to stroll.
Get in touch with nature at Mount Taranaki and Pouakai Circuit. Change things up with these side-trips from New Plymouth: Tawhiti Museum (in Hawera), Stratford (Fenton Street Art Collective & The Goblin Forest) and Egmont National Park (Dawson Falls & Connett Loop Track). There's lots more to do: take in the pleasant sights at New Plymouth Coastal Walkway, trek along Pouakai Crossing, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Taranaki Cathedral, Church of St Mary, and step off the mainland to explore Paritutu Rock.

To find maps, photos, and other tourist information, use the New Plymouth trip planning tool.

Auckland to New Plymouth is an approximately 3-hour flight. You can also drive; or take a bus. Finish your sightseeing early on the 2nd (Wed) to allow enough time to travel 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).
