Overview Of The Port Of New Plymouth

About New Plymouth
New Plymouth is the major city of the Taranaki Region on the west coast of the North Island of New Zealand.

The Coastal Walkway is a broad, boulder-edged promenade extending along the Tasman Sea for over 7km. It's the perfect place for walking, biking and running.

Pukekura Park is a Garden of National Significance, near the heart of New Plymouth. It contains a diverse range of native and exotic plants. There are also some easy walking trails. Features include the picturesque Poet's Bridge, a man-made cascading waterfall, fountain and small zoo. Row boats can also be hired.

Mount Taranaki offers stunning views and beautiful walks, there is also a small museum with information about the mountain.

Brooklands Zoo is an ideal place to visit for families with younger children. Animals include a selection of farmyard animals, otters, meerkats, capuchin and cotton-top tamarin monkeys, as well as colourful birds housed inside a walk-through free-flight aviary.

Pukeiti Rhododendron Park is a lovely garden featuring the international rhododendron collection. Even out of season, it is a lovely place to walk and free maps are provided offering a choice of walks.

Paritutu and the Sugar Loaf Islands are remnants of a large volcano that was active nearly two million years ago. From the top of Paritutu Rock, up a track the views of the entire coastline, port and the islands are spectacular.
