New Plymouth Holidays Overview

 

New Plymouth lies on the West Coast of the North Island. European settlers arrived here in March, 1841, however land ownership disputes with the local Maori people became volatile. As a result New Plymouth became a fortified garrison town and it was here that the First Taranaki War was fought in 1860-1861. New Plymouth's economy is sourced primarily from dairy farming, due to the surrounding rich volcanic soil, along with natural gas, oil, and petrochemical exploration and production.
 
New Plymouth is well known for being the city where you can be surfing and skiing all in the one day. This is possible due to the big waves off the coastline and the fact that Mount Taranaki (also known as Mount Egmont) is only 20 minutes away in the car. Tourists who are into physical activities will be spoilt for choice here. Options include surfing, skiing, snowboarding, alpine walks, rock climbing, and walking. Golfers will be thrilled to note that there are 20 golf courses in the region. There is also an aquatic centre providing pools, hydroslides, spa, and sauna.
 
New Plymouth also has a great selection of galleries, museum, theatre, restaurants and beautiful gardens to explore.
