Taranaki AttractionsStratford - Stratford has New Zealand's only clock tower with a glockenspiel. Look out for the Taranaki Pioneer Village, which recreates the pioneering days of the early 20th century.
Waitara - A methanol plant, orchards and dairy farms are what make Waitara tick. Like many places in Taranaki there is a strong Maori contemporary and historical influence, such as the Manukorihi Pa at Owae Marae.
Patea - Set between Wanganui and New Plymouth, Patea has a very strong Maori heritage, which can be seen at the South Taranaki Museum.
Jerusalem - Once home to the Sisters of Compassion order of nuns and poet James K Baxter, Jerusalem is now known for its laidback environment and its native bush surrounds.
Pipiriki - Part of the Whanganui River experience, Pipiriki has an information centre located at Colonial House and is the starting point for a visit to the Bridge to Nowhere.
Opunake - Surfers and anglers gravitate to this, sometimes wild, beach. Also the birthplace of one of New Zealand's greatest athletes, Peter Snell. Check out the town's murals.
Inglewood - Nestled at the north eastern base of Mt Taranaki, this farming community has a toy museum and private wildlife park.
Eltham - Egmont National Park, the Lake Rotokare Walkway and the Te Ngutu-O-Te-Manu battlesite can all be accessed via Eltham. Also check out its wonderful selection of locally produced cheeses.
Marybank - Marybank is a settlement on the east bank of the beautiful Whanganui
River, near the Wanganui airport.
