Taranaki Info

Taranaki Information

Taranaki offers a region like no other. Bordered by dramatic native bush to the east and the dynamic Tasman Sea to the west, the province wraps itself around the perfect peak of Mt Taranaki. You will find Taranaki a vibrant province, with cutting-edge contemporary art and a bustling local arts scene, a range of sporting and cultural events that are the envy of the rest of the country, and a vibrant cafe scene with seriously good coffee, great wine, and delicious home baking. Beyond the urban areas Taranaki boasts some of the world's best surf breaks, a seemingly endless network of walks on the picture-perfect cone of Mt Taranaki, and beautiful rivers, lakes, beaches and gardens of international significance to explore.
