Paritutu Rock & Traverse Adventure – Paritutu Centennial Park
- Paritutu Centennial Park is in Centennial Drive, New Plymouth
The entrance and start of the track is on the Northern side and it takes about 15 minutes to climb. The track is a hard walk/scramble to the top but the views are spectacular and well worth the effort. You can see all of the New Plymouth coastline, city, port, and the Sugar Loaf Islands.
Located on the seaward side of Paritutu Rock this adventure involves swinging across chasms, rockclimbing, and scrambling across vertical cliffs.
This adventure is great for children and families as they get to see the seals that live within the reserve.
Protected marine park.
At the base of Paritutu Rock is a brightly-painted totara carving commissioned by the Paritutu Community Group. The carving reflects aspects from Maori and Pakeha cultures, and two panels represent the area's hapu Ngati Te Whiti and Nga Mahanga A Tairi.
