New Plymouth

New Plymouth is a sunny city located in the Taranaki region, offering a lively cosmopolitan base for exploring the rest of Taranaki. New Plymouth is a popular tourist destination, well-known for its black sand surfing beaches, glorious parks and gardens and its vibrant arts scene.

Connecting the many attractions is a network of walking and cycling trails, the most prominent of which is the city’s Coastal Walkway. Pukekura Park on Liardet Street and Tupare Garden on Mangorei Rd are also great spots for a short walk through beautifully landscaped gardens where you can find stunning views, exotic plant specimens, great family picnic spots and historic marvels. more

The centre point for New Plymouth’s arts scene is the Govett-Brewster Art Gallery/Len Lye Centre – New Zealand’s first and only museum of contemporary art. With its curved exterior walls of mirror-like stainless steel, the museum is a must-see with tours available from Thursday-Sunday at 2pm (bookings must be made 24 hours in advance).

While you are in New Plymouth, be sure to check out the delicious restaurants and cafes – from chilled out coffee roasteries to hidden, VIP restaurants, your taste buds will thank you!
