About the neighbourhood
Taranaki is on the western coast of North Island New Zealand. The coastline is beautiful as is the hinterland. The Opunake and Pihama areas have a lot of dairy farms as a result of the rich pasture. It is a place of real beauty. The clarity of the air and wide open spaces make it a place where you can recharge your spirit.
