New Plymouth

New Plymouth is a port town and the main city in Taranaki. Initial settlement started in the 1840s.

New Plymouth now has a population of some 47,000. The most notable features are the excellent botanic gardens and the nice views of the mountain.

Being a coastal town with a mountain within an hours drive away, the more adventurous residents of the city are able to boast of having snowboarded/skied and surfed all in the same day.
