The district offers numerous activities; enjoy a coffee in one of the many cafes, swim at one of the black-sand beaches, wander along the 11km Coastal Walkway, browse through Puke Ariki (a fully-integrated museum and library) or take part in a wide range of sports.

New Plymouth is also the centre of New Zealand’s oil, gas and petrochemical industry, producing the bulk of New Zealand’s petroleum and petrochemical products and contributing billions to the nation’s economy.

Taranaki’s mild climate allows residents and visitors ample opportunity to enjoy the many outdoor activities on offer. Taranaki has more sunshine hours than most of the country while the rainfall is enough to keep the grass green and the fauna flourishing.
