Mt Egmont, now called Mt Taranaki Puke Ariki Centre, Taranaki

Situated on the west coast of the North Island, Taranaki is a cultural and outdoor adventure nirvana.

Mount Taranaki (formerly Mt Egmont), in the Egmont National Park, is at the heart of Taranaki district and is a must see.

If funds allow the best views of this magnificent mountain are to be seen from a helicopter. There are many wonderful walks on Mt Taranaki through untouched native bush, both day walks and overnight tramps with stay-overs in DOC huts. On Mt Tarakani's south-eastern slopes is the 18m high waterfall, Dawson Falls, which is well worth visiting.

The city of New Plymouth has many wonderful places to explore and the inner-city botanical wonderland of Pukekura Park is such a place. The 128 acres include a myriad of short walks through a variety of different gardens, lakes, a zoo, historical tea house and a playground.

New Plymouth has a new 10km sea-edge promenade, which is ideal for walking, running and cycling. It is beautifully designed to maximise the feeling of walking along the sea-edge and to capture the view of the open coastline.

The Puke Ariki Museum has a library and visitor information centre (iSite) and is on the city's waterfront.

There are many popular beaches in the area, which are great for surfing, swimming, playing in and relaxing on.

Sugar Loaf Island Marine Reserve is home of ancient volcanic stubble formed 1.75 million years ago. Happy Chaddy's Charters cruise through this reserve and visits a New Zealand fur seal colony.

There is no shortage of things to do and places to visit in Taranaki.
