Mt Taranaki - drive up to Dawsons FallsTweet
Dominating the skyline of the Taranaki region of New Zealand is Mount Taranaki itself. Home to Egmont National Park which covers over 33,000 hectares, Mt Egmont (as Mt Taranaki is also known) is also home to several drives around the base of the mountain as well as some routes through the national park. However, one of the best drives on the mountain is the drive upto Dawson Falls. The drive through native bush opens up at the Department of Conservation Office and car park which affords excellent views of South Taranaki .
