A great little service town in provincial Taranaki, surrounded by dairy farmers, the mighty Taranaki Mountain Maunga and some of the best surf spots in the world.
Explore the 7 km Ōpunakē Loop Trail by bike or foot, see stunning views of our rugged coastline and visit the black sand Ōpunakē beach. Maybe catch a movie at the beautifully restored Everybody’s Theatre.
