Located on New Zealand’s wild west coast halfway between Auckland and Wellington, the Taranaki region is an outdoor adventure paradise!
Nature lovers can explore the lower slopes of Mt Taranaki on the Pouakai Crossing or walk the New Plymouth Coastal Walkway for incredible views of the rugged coastline. For a more leisurely stroll visit the Pukeiti Gardens (with a stop for a delicious lunch at its cafe), wander one of the art trails or the award-winning museum.
After more of a thrill? You can hit those iconic volcanic slopes for snowboarding in the winter! Taranaki also offers epic river rafting, while Surfers flock to the 12 world-class surf breaks along ‘surfer’s highway’ in search of the perfect wave (we hear the Kumara Patch near Okato has excellent left-hand breaks).
All of our Taranaki accommodations are pre-inspected prior to your arrival and are ready for instant online booking.
