- The Taranaki Rhododendron and Garden Festival is famous for it's beautiful range of gardens - usually 50 +. Plan to visit in late October early November to see the flowers at the best.
- You must visit the Te Rewa Rewa bridge, part of the Coastal Walkway. It was designed to "touch lightly" on the Rewa Rewa side as that land belongs to Ngati Tawhirikura who asked that the design honoured their dead. Shaped like a rib cage unfurling, the bridge perfectly frames Mt Taranaki and is an excellent photo opportunity.
- Every year from mid-December to mid-February, The Festival of Lights transforms Pukekura Park into an illuminated magic wonderland. Absolutely stunning, and free!
- The Govett-Brewster Art Gallery is the leading contemporary art gallery un Australasia and is definitely worth a visit. Make sure you leave yourself a good hour or so.
