New Plymouth. It’s where I grew up.
Two shags perched over the Te Henui.
New Plymouth is one of the most cycle accessible cities in New Zealand and the coastal walkway is a key part of reducing congestion on our roads and encourgaing alternative forms of transport.
The 11 or so kilometres of costal walkway is a great walk or cycle. The crashing of the waves is very peaceful.
The revamped Huatoki Plaza is a neat little mall area which is worth checking out.
