In 2017, Taranaki, New Zealand was voted by The Lonely Planet as being the 2nd best region in the world to visit.
Wow. That’s a pretty big label—a lot to live up to.
My family and I have lived in this region for twelve years and now consider ourselves Naki locals. As you can imagine, New Zealand has a lot of pros and cons and Taranaki is no different.

Living in Taranaki, New Zealand
You may be thinking of moving to New Zealand and you are currently trying to decide which is best, the North Island or South Island. I’ll always be a North island fan. But only one place on the North Island. Taranaki.
I love Taranaki so much that I dedicated an entire post to it. In that blog post, I give 16 reasons why we consider Taranaki to be the best place in New Zealand.
But today we are here to talk about the downsides of living on the far western tip of New Zealand’s North Island. The pros and the cons.
In this week’s podcast episode, Brian and I talk about:
- Living remotely
- Being too old to join in
- Being too mean to pay for them
- Black sand beaches
- Dangerous waters
- Café culture in Taranaki
