Taranaki Daily News

Taranaki Daily News

Taranaki has a very strong economy built around farming and the oil and gas industries.  Bordered by the beautiful west coast, with Mount Taranaki in the middle, the region offers a great lifestyle to the locals, while also increasingly becoming a strong tourist and holiday destination.  Every week the Taranaki Daily News reaches 83% of the population aged 15+ within its own circulation area.
