Aotearoa New Zealand is a taonga (treasure). Whether you live in this land or are visiting, we ask you to make a promise to look after it for future generations.
In Aotearoa, we feel a special connection with the natural world. Tangata whenua (people of this land) see nature as something intrinsically intertwined with human life. Every mountain, every river, every tree has a story.
Guardians such as Ranginui (sky), Papatūānuku (earth), Tāne Mahuta (forest) and Tangaroa (oceans) look over these lands and waters.
The Tiaki Promise is a commitment to this place.
We ask that you:
- care for land, sea and nature, treading lightly and leaving no trace
- travel safely, showing care and consideration for all
- respect the culture and local communities, travelling with an open heart and mind.
Be guardians, be protectors. Make a promise. Tiaki - care for New Zealand.
From Mount Taranaki to the many surf breaks along Surf Highway 45, Taranaki has something for everyone. Ngāmotu - New Plymouth is home to The Len Lye Centre and award winning Puke Ariki Museum, whilst further around our mighty Maunga are located Tawhiti Museum and Fun Ho!
