Taranaki Region
Taranaki region is located on the west coast of New Zealand's North Island. The dominant feature is the snow-capped cone of Mount Taranaki (or Mount Egmont), the 2nd tallest mountain in the North Island and part of Egmont National Park.

The region is exceptionally fertile with rich volcanic soil and lush green paddocks and dairy farming predominates.

Taranaki is home to a vibrant arts and crafts scene, gourmet cafes and restaurants, large scale music events and magnificent gardens of national significance, including Pukekura Park, Brooklands and Pukeiti. Visit the film locations of The Last Samurai or tour the region's boutique wineries and breweries.

The Taranaki coastline has more than 200 km of swimming, walking, surfing, diving, kayaking, fishing and exploring opportunities.

New Plymouth, the region's main city, has many art galleries and museums including Puke Ariki, a world-class heritage centre housing more than 6,000 significant Maori taonga (treasures).
