About New Plymouth

New Plymouth is the major city of the Taranaki Region. The city is named after Plymouth Devon, England, from where the first English settlers migrated.

New Plymouth is the home of the TSB Bank, the largest of the remaining non-government New Zealand-owned banks. TSB also holds an annual festival in the city known as the TSB Bank Festival of Lights.  

Some of the city's notable features are its botanic gardens, the 11 km coastal walkway alongside the Tasman Sea and views from Mount Taranaki.

Mount Taranaki stands 2518 metres high and is considered to possess one of the most symmetrical volcanic cones in the world. The mountain has a similar resemblance to Mount Fuji and provided the backdrop for the movie The Last Samurai.
