A transforming region where your career, family and lifestyle can flourish

Ask anyone around here and they’ll tell you - you couldn’t ask for a better place to build a life. Taranaki’s humming. We’re also welcoming and friendly with a strong sense of pride, community, and whānau. If you’re seeking that great and easy lifestyle, with abundant opportunities to live, learn, work and play – you’ll find it here. No matter your age, background, or beliefs, Taranaki is where you can create a real future for yourself, and your family.

Right around our ancestral maunga (which is truly at the heart of life here), you’ll find vibrant, diverse, and forward-thinking communities. A world-renowned arts and culture scene. A bustling food, drink, and entertainment industry. Thriving sports clubs and facilities (Paige Hareb and the Barrett brothers are just the tip of the iceberg). A growing, sustainable and future-focused economy. Quality high-school, tertiary, and vocational education options. Increasingly varied career paths. Fresh air. Abundant nature. And all the opportunity, possibility, and nourishment you’ll need, right on your doorstep.

Go no further

If you want to leave the big city behind without losing those big city opportunities – this is it. Growing, but far from crowded. Independent, but connected to the world. Taranaki really is a place where you can have your cake (workwise) and eat it (lifestyle). Find the freedom and time to be yourself. Discover what’s important. Live life to the full. Create a brighter future. Embrace a way of living as diverse as it is rewarding. More and more people from around New Zealand and the world are doing just that, and we’re pleased to welcome them to our place, for the opportunity of a lifetime.

But don’t take our word for it. Taranaki’s opportunity and lifestyle has to be experienced to be believed.


Taranaki. Live Like No Other.
