Mount Egmont National Park

After reaching the summit of Mount Taranaki, I had to return to see more of the area and what was on offer. Sadly, I didn't choose the right time and we had nearly a whole week of rain. Nonetheless, that didn't stop us from doing a couple of trails and getting a couple of lovely views. Sort of. I've since returned four times and enjoyed a range of experiences in what might just be my favourite part of New Zealand's north island.

New Plymouth has plenty of things to see and do - the coastal walkway, Paritutu Rock, Pukekura Park as well as some lovely restaurants and bars too. The national park surrounding Mount Taranaki, Mount Egmont National Park, has lots of great places to visit too. Rain or shine, you won't be disappointed if you take a trip over to the west coast.
