OUR REGION - TARANAKI
We are so lucky to have our New Plymouth base situated in the beautiful province of Taranaki, where Mount Egmont/Taranaki with its lush rainforests, is the central heart and backdrop.
Renowned for Mountain to Surf Marathons, Snowboarding/skiing in the morning, surfing in the afternoon at one of our many tremendous surf beaches, we really do live in our own Paradise!
Add to this, the many parks, (Pukekura & Bowl of Brooklands to name just two), reserves, walkways, great golf courses, and now our famous Len Lye sculpture - the Wind Wand, we have an environment that provides just as much on the lifestyle front as it does awe-inspiring vistas. Great for the adventurous, as well as the laid back visitor, you are also well catered for with a wide range of cafes, restaurants and shops, and even a couple of wineries to wile away the hours.
When you consider what we have, no wonder New Plymouth was named New Zealand's top town and the best city of our size in the WORLD in 2008.
