Taranaki New Zealand


Taranaki New Zealand
The Taranaki region is mid way between Auckland and Wellington, facing the Tasman Sea on the West coast. This is ideal for outdoors sports and surfing. Skiing is also possible on Mount Egmont/Taranaki known as either Mount Egmont or Mount Taranaki located in Egmont National Park. Other activities include rafting, kayaking, golf, hiking, and swimming. Taranaki offers an alpine and national park wonderland, rolling green fields, a beautiful coast and enough Maori and colonial history to fill a library. Enjoy the great outdoors with mountain to sea experiences and everything in between.
