Where other cities run, New Plymouth prefers to stroll. With a laid-back atmosphere, sunny climate, pristine parks, and an abundance of art galleries, a trip to New Plymouth offers plenty of delightful relaxation. Take a gentle coastal walk, admiring the views of the water sparkling under the persistent sun. Meanwhile, Mount Taranaki looms above, dwarfing the city and beckoning hikers to the trails of its national park. Enjoy high-quality local cuisine at any one of a number of fine restaurants located in New Plymouth's center, along with good shopping opportunities. Our New Zealand driving holiday planner allows you to schedule your trip to New Plymouth, learn about its attractions, and find out about where else to go during your holiday.
