New Plymouth

New Plymouth is the major city of the Taranaki Region. The area, while primarily known for its agricultural and dairy farms also offers the visitor a rich history, great walks in native bush parks, the beautiful coastline nearby, and a range of sights, including neat colonial and contemporary New Zealand architecture.

The city is known for its proximity to both sea and mountain, with Mt Taranaki rising to the south of the city, visitors could surf and ski on the same day.

The town is full of interesting historic places and you can view these by taking the New Plymouth Heritage Walkway. This walkway guides you through 30 historic sites in and around the city.

Karanga Statue

The statue in the above picture is named Karanga, and was donated to Rangimare Maori Arts & Crafts society during the first Taranaki Festival of New Zealand Arts.
