New Plymouth in Review
The sunny city of New Plymouth is the port and capital of the vibrant Taranaki Region and is located on the west coast of New Zealand’s North Island. Famous for its black sand, world class surfing beaches, outdoor activities, glorious parks and gardens, New Plymouth is top holiday destination.
Blessed with unusual beauty, the Taranaki Region is a mecca for outdoor adventure enthusiasts. Horse trekking skydiving, bungee jumping and glacial hiking are just a few of the limitless possibilities New Plymouth has to offer.
The highlight of any visit to this diverse region is New Zealand’s most climbed mountain, Mt Taranaki, packed with hikers and climbers in the summer and popular with skiers in winter. Superb parks and the annual Rhododendron Festival are a delight to any gardener’s heart and culture seekers will not be disappointed by the Taranaki Museums where original collections of Maori artifacts, whale and moa skeletons, paintings and ornaments are on display.
New Plymouth is top tourist destination on a stunning location and an adventurous playground for young and old.
