M&O Pacific

M&O Pacific, located at 28 Manadon Street, New Plymouth, is just 1500Meters from our front door.  We have developed a strong working relationship with M&O Pacific offering accommodation and meals to training participants.

We offer accommodation for M&O Pacific training courses including marine safety programmes such as the OPITO accredited Basic Offshore Safety Induction Emergency Training (BOSIET) and Helicopter Underwater Emergency Training (HUET).


The following are in no particular order, browse a few of the links below to get a feel of what's going on in the Taranaki/ New Plymouth area.

The local council website is a good place to start.

The festival of lights is a great example of how to use public areas.

The Taranaki Rhododendron and Garden Festival is now hosted by the Taranaki Arts Festival Trust.  These guys know what they are doing and host some of the regions premier events throughout the year.

The WOMAD festival is another good example but aimed a a different crowd.

Where would NZ be without Rugby?  This year Taranaki host 3 games of the Rugby World Cup.

The Taranaki venture website is about as flash as you'll find. (pun intended). Don't go there if your on dial-up.

The Windwand site has a lot of good info but the design of the actual site itself always makes me want to leave.

This is the B&B we stay in when we travel to Auckland.  It's all good.

A local Taranaki guide that may be of use to you can be found here.
