Day 79 of 97 – Mount Taranaki and Surf Highway

Mount Taranaki
Mount Taranaki

Have made it up to Taranaki Area. Drove up the Surf Highway, but we will come back to that.

Went up Mount Taranaki for the Summit walk. Wet was the word of the day, with cloud as the back-up. Couldn’t see anything hence no photos. We drove past the mountain one day looked amazing with no cloud and bet the views are some of the best in NZ so check it out on a good forecast day.

Surfing: Surf Highway from Hawera round to New Plymouth. Every Beach is a surf beach pretty much. My favourite was down “Weld Road Lower” 25 km south of New Plymouth. Nice break, just watch out for the rocks! South end of the beach has a really old ship wreck on the beach you can check out as well.
