South Taranaki spans a large portion of the region.

From Ōkato and around the coastline of Taranaki, following the curved clifftops of Surf Highway 45, circumnavigating the mountain to Hāwera and further south to Waitotara, as well as the inland towns of Normanby and Eltham.

With vast land coverage comes plenty of unique things to see and do. With so much more to discover than beaches and world-class surf breaks, South Taranaki offers ample points of historic and cultural interest, scenic picnic spots, welcoming cafés, and a thriving artist community.
