Exploring New Plymouth & Drive to RaglanJuly 12, 2020 in New Zealand ⋅ ☁️ 13 °C
Unfortunately we woke up to another grey rainy day but we didn't let it ruin our plans. We first drove to Te Rewa Rewa Bridge. We were hoping the clouds will clear so we get a beautiful view of Mount Taranaki. Unfortunately we couldn't see it again but it was an interesting bridge to walk across. It looked like a breaking wave or a whale skeleton.
Next we went to Pukerua Park. It had a beautiful waterfall, large lakes, fountains and bright red bridges. We walked through beautiful gardens.
After this we went to Puke Ariki Museum. We learnt about the history of Taranaki life and the nature here in Taranaki. We then had lunch and drove to Raglan. It was a stunning costal drive there. We arrived in the evening and checked in to Raglan Backpackers. We have our own 3 bed dorm. It seems very relaxed here by the harbour with hammocks outside our room, jacuzzi and small sauna. It's also got a lounge with a fireplace. It's a very relaxed vibe here.Read more
