Beyond the urbane, explore the Egmont National Park and the base of Taranaki Maunga to discover the many short walks, waterfalls and enchanted scenery.

Explore stunning street art and the 12km New Plymouth Coastal Walkway by foot, scooter or e-bike to discover art and installations along the way. From ‘Big Wave Territory’ at the Port of Taranaki, to the ‘Wind Wand’, and down to Te Rewa Rewa Bridge – on a clear day, you’ll be fortunate enough to get a shot of the maunga down the barrel of the bridge.

Less outdoor-types can head to Hāwera and enjoy Tawhiti Museum, and the Traders and Whalers experience, or journey around the mountain on Surf Highway 45, stopping at some of the many great cafes, art galleries and studios along the way.
 

When it comes time to put your feet up, there’s some great options available, from urban hotels, motel and bnb’s, to coastal stays, or even spend a night up the mountain before or after the show.

Book your perfect weekend in Taranaki today, and grab your tickets to the first ever outdoor Synthony event before it’s too late, and make a weekend of it!
