The New Plymouth town centre extends right to the waterfront, where the Tasman Sea washes up to the coastline. Extensive public areas and walkways allow you to take in the sea air. Also on the waterfront is our 45m high artwork by Len Lye, a New Zealand artist who pioneered kinetic sculpture and modernist film animation techniques.

On a clear day, the southern skyline is dominated by Mount Taranaki (Mount Egmont). Because of its stunning symmetrical shape, Mt Taranaki was used as the backdrop for the film The Last Samurai in place of Mt Fuji. New Plymouth is unique in that it offers surfing and skiing within one hour’s drive.

New Plymouth plays host to WOMAD (World of Music and Arts Dance Festival), the famous Taranaki Rhododendron & Garden Festival, the Festival of Lights, the Round the Mountain cycle race, a biannual arts festival, and the Quality Hotel Plymouth International ITU Triathlon World Cup.
