NZ Introduction- New Plymouth

這城市是在Mt. Taranaki附近最大的一個城市,這附近除了Mt. Taranki外另外知名的就是沿著海岸的衝浪公路(Surf Highway)和沙灘了~這邊主要的景點有:

Mt. Taranaki--Egmont National Park,無話可說當然是這邊最主要的景點,從市區就可以看到山頂了。開到山北邊的遊客中心大約一個小時半的車程。

Pukekura Park--建立於1867年,市區中很大的一個公園,最特別的地方就是從這邊可以看到Mt. Taranki的山頂,就遠遠的露在兩個山中間,加上面前的湖,讓你感覺很特別~而這邊另外一個很美的景點是公園中的瀑布,不過我們到的時候竟然故障待修(人工的?!)。公園中有相當多的步道,從短的15分鐘到長的30-40分鐘都有,你可以沿著湖畔走,或是走在森林中享受森林浴。裡面還有兒童動物園、表演舞台、或是在湖中划船,相當多樣的選擇,來到這一定要到這看看~

Lake Mangamahoe--離New Plymouth大約30分鐘的車程,是另一個看Mt. Taranki的好景點,也是一樣山就在眼前加上湖泊和遠方的樹林,讓你感覺相當的舒服~1920年政府買下這塊地,1931年建立起湖泊,為了蓄水供城市使用。湖泊的名稱來自於Mangamahoe Stream,因為水是來自這條小溪和另一條例用548m水管連接過來的Waiwakaiho River。這裡面有兩條步道:

Lake Mangamahoe Circuit Walk-六公里,需要時間兩小時,困難度中等/困難。
Forest Walk-3公里,需要時間90分鐘,困難度中等/困難。

St. Mary Church-建於1846年,是紐西蘭最古老的石頭建築的教堂。

Mataora Rock-就在火力發電廠的旁邊,並不是很高的石頭,但是卻很陡峭,要爬到山頂的話大約15分鐘的時間,但是累的是要手腳並用還要時時抓住繩子,相當的驚險。但是從山頂可以有很棒的視野看整個城市和附近的海灘及小島~

Marslai Hill-小到根本就只是一個小小的丘嶺,上面有天文台(更小~),視野還好,但是風很強~

(New Plymouth)

When we went on a trip to Mt. Taranaki, we stayed at New Plymouth. In this city, there are many attractions. Pukekura Park, located in the city center is a very spectacular park. Through here, you can see the magnificent Mt. Taranaki. You can also row a boat on the lake, have a walk around the lake.

St. Mary's Church is the oldest stone church in New Zealand. It is not a very big church, but it is very beautiful. You can touch the wall and feel it is over 150 years old.

Mataroa is a very steep rock near the power station. It takes 15 minutes to climb to the top, but you have to use your hands to help you. From the top of the rock, you can see Mt. Taranaki, beaches and New Plymouth. The view was wonderful but it was very difficult to go down the rock. After we had climbed down again, my legs began to shake. I couldn't control them.

New Plymouth is a small city, but it makes you feel relaxed. It's a good place for a vacation. I really like this city.
