Where you’ll be

Waitara, Taranaki, New Zealand

We are 300 metres from the Waitara Beach and river mouth. This is a premium spot for water sports. Surfing, kite surfing, windsurfing, kayaking, kayak fishing, yachting in the river... The Waitara River walk and cycle way is 200m away and is a nice way to walk to the local New World supermarket. New Plymouth city is 15 minutes drive away. The foreshore walkway is fantastic for walking or biking. Pukekura Park also has great walks and is stunning in summer during the festival of the lights.

We are 35 minutes drive from Mt Egmont National Park. If you are fit you can climb Mount Taranaki in the summer months. The Taranaki Crossing is also a fantastic, scenic one day walk in summer, and is much less crowded than the Tongariro Crossing. Another popular walk is the three sisters area which is abouft 35 mins drive north of our home.
