New Plymouth

The Taranaki lifestyle has become the stuff of legend. The region is known as the energy province of New Zealand - as much for the rich mineral resources underneath it, as the energised landscape and welcoming locals who live here. At its heart – both geographically and spiritually – stands Mount Taranaki, a natural playground and proud regional icon that gives rise to everything we do here.

Nestled on the west coast half way between Auckland and Wellington, the progressive capital city of the region, New Plymouth, was judged New Zealand’s Top Town by influential North & South magazine. Then last year Lonely Planet magazine announced Taranaki as the second best place in the world to visit.

We disagree.

We think it is simply the best place in the world to live and work.
