Taranaki, New Zealand: 2 reviews and 5 photos


New Plymouth is an attractive coastal city and the only city in the Taranaki. The prominent attraction is Mount Taranaki (formerly called Mt. Egmont) which towers in the background. Egmont National Park surrounds the mountain which is renowed for skiing in winter and trekking and climbing in summer. This is one of the best parks in New Zealand along with Pukekura Park.. The coast has black sand beaches and there is plenty of opportunity for swimming, diving, surfing, windsurfing, game fishing, camping and cruising.
