Mayor of South Taranaki
Koromatua o Taranaki ki te Tonga
Welcome to South Taranaki – a district full of exciting opportunities and a lifestyle second to none. It is the perfect place to live, work, play and visit. With a strong and growing economy job opportunities abound. Our energy sector is recognised world-wide, some of the country's foremost food processing companies export from South Taranaki and one of the largest dairy companies in the world is centred right here!
The district also boasts some of the most spectacular scenery in the world. There are the world-famous West Coast surf beaches (Surf Highway 45), a multitude of wonderful parks, gardens and reserves, and of course, the breathtaking Mt Taranaki. Where else could you be tramping on a volcano one minute, then surfing at the beach less than an hour later!
Spread across seven close knit communities our residents enjoy many of the advantages of city life - with modern cafes, cinema, sport and recreation, health and education facilities - without the hassles. Forget traffic lights or traffic jams, it takes most people only minutes to get to and from work, leaving more time for family, leisure and recreation.
I hope you enjoy browsing through our website. The South Taranaki District Council is dedicated to helping residents and visitors find the information they need about South Taranaki. If you need more information don’t hesitate to contact the Council with the details provided.
I look forward to seeing you sometime soon in South Taranaki.
