Welcome to Mt Taranaki & Around
Mt Taranaki sure looks good for 120,000-years old. A point of reference everywhere you go, it's responsible for the fertile plains – and the unpredictable weather. Appreciated by both Māori iwi with a spiritual connection and travellers with wi-fi connection, those who come prepared can appreciate the views from the top. Hiking can be dangerous as the conditions change quickly, but it's just as beautiful from the bottom in the surrounding towns of Inglewood and Stratford.
