New Plymouth, NZ

So what’s in the major city of the Taranaki Region? I guess the Coastal Walkway is one of the biggest attractions here which I visited first. It’s a 13km path which is good for bicycling or walking or just simply enjoying the breathtaking view of the west coast. The pathway includes the iconic Te Rewa Rewa brigde. I cycled here for 2.5 hours. Here are some of the beautiful photos I’ve taken alomg the way.


Unfortunately, it was too cloudy for me to see Mt. Taranaki but the bridge itself is awesome.


I visited the Pukekura Park next. It was a nice walk as I expected. 



I headed straight to Puke Ariki museum and library. If you need to use a computer, you can simply ask for your log in details at the reception area. 

I also checked out the Art Gallery. There wasn’t much there but it’s worth a visit while in town. 


On my last day in New Plymouth, I went to the rooftop of the Centre City’s parking lot. Mr. Mt. Taranaki showed up just before I left. 🙂

What a lovely stay in New Plymouth. 😉
