Second Best Region in the World

13 June, 2018

New Zealand’s best kept secret is finally out. Tucked on the western coast of New Zealand, out on its own, is Taranaki – The Naki, Taranaki Hardcore, Taradise, whatever you want to call it. The secret of its beauty has been kept between the locals for generations. From its popular surf beaches and iconic mountain, to its one of a kind art scene, cafes and dining, Taranaki has something for everyone and now the world knows about it. Taranaki was voted one of the world’s best regions to visit in 2017, the second-best region in fact. So, what was it about Taranaki that set it above all the rest? The Len Lye centre was raved about as one of the must see, as was the Pouakai crossing. The Pouakai Crossing provides all of the stunning scenery of other crossings, but without being overloaded as other tracks are. Taranaki has many sensational lakes, waterfalls and gardens to please anyone’s sightseeing palate. It also offers small town charm that is lost in the bigger cities. Taranaki even has a Forgotten World Highway to take you back to simpler times as you meander through the winding road before arriving at Whangamomona, an experience that everyone must tick off their to do lists. So, don’t miss out on the hottest place to visit on the planet right now.
