The City of New Plymouth 

The city of New Plymouth, half-way between Auckland and Wellington on the west coast of New Zealand’s North Island, sits between the picture-perfect peak of Mount Taranaki and the dynamic surf breaks at the edge of the Tasman Sea. The city’s 75,000 residents are welcoming and active, and the region has endless empty roads and a fantastic cycle park and 13km coastal walkway, a stunning sheltered swim route and great training facilities, making it a popular stop on the ITU calendar. 

Taranaki is home to its own bank, the TSB, all of New Zealand’s oil and gas production, and a strong dairy production sector, all of which contribute to the region’s legendary vibrancy: Taranaki was recently judged one of the best destinations in the world in Lonely Planet’s Best in Travel awards.

There’s a lot to see and do in New Plymouth beyond triathlon, from a stunning Len Lye Centre and Govett-Brewster Art Gallery contemporary art museum to the serene inner-city botanic gardens Pukekura Park, the fascinating Puke Ariki Museum, and a coffee culture that’s become legendary.

Standing just beyond the city is the mythical 2518m peak of Mount Taranaki, which offers more than 200km of walks and hikes across its slopes, and a ski field that makes Taranaki one of the few places in the world where you can ski and surf in the same morning, with a decent coffee in between.
