If it's casinos, geysers, over priced 'plastic' tourism experiences and huge hotels blighting the coastline you are after - don't come to South Taranaki. However if it is magnificent coastline; the perfect volcanic cone of majestic Mount Taranaki; an abundance of 'soft' and 'hard' adventures in New Zealand's most accessible National Park; clean, clear rivers and lakes; and countless sites of historic and cultural interest that you are after, then South Taranaki is the perfect destination.
From climbing your way to the top of Hawera's historic water tower to breathing the spirit that is Parihaka, South Taranaki offers an experience like no other.
