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.
