Where is it?
New Plymouth is a town of around 60,000. It was named the world's most liveable city in the 20,001 - 75,000 population category, of the 2008 International Awards for Liveable Communities. It is on the coast with several good beaches. A short distance inland is Mt Taranaki, a beautiful cone shaped mountain, over 2,500m high. There are many lovely walks on the mountain and there is a ski field open sometimes in the Winter. The area is famous for its gardens and parks. Pukekura Park has an outdoor theatre which hosts concerts in the Summer months, often with well-known performers such as Elton John, Kiri te Kanawa and Mark Knopfler. WOMAD is held here annually in March. The town has many excellent restaurants and cafes, as well as an art gallery, modern museum and library. It is also a bustling port for container ships and smaller sailing and fishing boats. You can take a trip round the Sugar Loaf islands in a converted lifeboat. New Plymouth has a good climate with lots of sunshine. Though there is snow on the mountain it is rare to have a frost in the Winter on the coast.
