Take me to....
The almost perfect volcanic cone of Mount Taranaki dominates the region. The usually snow capped peak forms an ever present landmark. There are some amazing walking opportunities on the slopes too.
In New Plymouth, see pioneering Kiwi artist Len Lye’s amazing 45 metre tall kinetic sculpture.
Taranaki is renowned also for its gardens, especially rhododendrons, and surf beaches so here there is plenty to see and do. If you have the opportunity, be sure to travel the “Forgotten Highway” and you will see some of the true New Zealand.
Prices from $110 to $250 per couple

Quality Assessments: In New Zealand independent Quality assessments of accommodation establishments are available, on a voluntary basis, by Qualmark, which has a star rating system, and by the New Zealand Bed & Breakfast Association.
Many properties choose not to participate in either of these schemes which should not be taken as any indication that they are not of an equally high standard as those that do. TrueNZ Guides does not carry out quality assessments and the inclusion of any property in this Guide does not imply or give any endorsement or standard. Individual properties have self assessed themselves as being suitable for inclusion in this Guide and TrueNZ takes no responsibility for their respective claims & descriptions.
