About New Plymouth:

New Plymouth has won multiple awards as a city, and has been selected by the government as a cycling model community. With both the coast and Mount Taranaki so close nearby, people can easily enjoy water activities year-round and snow sports in the winter.

As the major city of the Taranaki Region, New Plymouth is the service centre for the region’s major industries such as farming and oil, natural gas and petrochemical exploration.

Mount Taranaki can be seen from all areas of New Plymouth and as it's only a short 30 minute drive from the centre of town, visitors to New Plymouth can surf, ski, water ski and snowboard all in the same day!

New Plymouth is well known for the number of stunning parks, reserves and walkways. The Pukekura Park, the Sugar Loaf Islands and the Ratapihipihi Scenic Reserve are just some of the places you could visit to relax and enjoy nature. The Coastal Walkway is a 12.7km pathway providing stunning views of the dramatic west coast and can be enjoyed by people of all ages - get your scooters and skateboards out for maximum fun! 

If you'd like to learn more about the history and heritage of the Taranaki region, pay a visit to one of the museums such as Puke Ariki or the Hurworth Cottage.
