From the varied outdoor offerings set against the region’s spectacular mountain, bush or coastal backdrops to the thriving art, culture and music scene and cool café culture in our urban centres, there’s something for everyone. It’s no wonder Lonely Planet voted Taranaki number two region in the world to visit in 2017.
It’s no secret that Taranaki is a legendary destination in which to live, work and play. The region’s dynamic surf, multitude of parks and gardens, iconic walkways, major events calendar and mountain playground make it a perfect place to call home. Taranaki is now considered the best place to work and buy a home in the country as the rate of wage growth has best kept up with the increase in house prices nationwide.
