Live Like A Local

If you ask most Kiwis about New Plymouth, chances are you’ll end up with directions to Palmerston North, or a vague answer concerning cows and a mountain. Sometimes, being off the beaten track is tough. Being off the beaten track in New Zealand can be even tougher.

Favourite Spots in New Plymouth

When I first arrived in New Plymouth I didn´t like it. It was too much of the same and on the first look just like any other bigger city I had visited in New Zealand. But after staying here for four weeks I found some spots I really loved and can recommend to everyone who´s planning on visiting New Plymouth. For starters, it might be good to know that most of these are best to reach by car but there are taxis available in the city.
