Here's a little taste of WOMAD New Zealand - great crowds, awesome tunes and fun in the sun with your friends!
If you're in the region for WOMAD New Zealand you might like to visit the awesome Te Rere O Noke (Dawson Falls) and wander through a section of the stunning goblin forest to see it.
Sunset at Wai Iti Beach. Beautiful.
It's shaping up to be another awesome WOMAD New Zealand weekend in Taranaki. If you're visiting from out of region - make sure you come and see us at the 'Taranaki Embassy' up near the food village. Nau mai, haere mai WOMAD whanau! See you tomorrow!
Yet another reason to visit our stunning Pukekura Park. Well done New Plymouth District Council
Glorious pic of Motuotamatea Island at Back Beach. Taranaki really is a place like no other...
