New Plymouth

— 8 nights
Where other cities run, New Plymouth prefers to stroll.
Venture out of the city with trips to Mount Taranaki (in Egmont National Park), Hawera (Puketarata Garden, Tawhiti Museum, &more) and Stratford (Hollard Gardens, Te Popo Gardens, &more). Next up on the itinerary: go for a walk through New Plymouth Coastal Walkway, head off the coast to Paritutu Rock, explore the different monuments and memorials at Te Henui Cemetery, and pause for some serene contemplation at Taranaki Cathedral, Church of St Mary.

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).
