Mt Moturoa Domain is a circular parking area on top of a local landmark with stunning views out over New Plymouth. On a clear day, Mt Taranaki is in full view.

 

We drove up and only parked long enough to have a lunch break before heading back down the coast to Wangaui. Unfortunately, Mt Taranaki was shrouded in cloud and we couldn't set it at all.

 

This is a great locaton to enjoy the view, epecially on a still day. On top of a small moutain it is a bit exposed to wind otherwise.

 

There are no signs forbidding overnight parking, and it would make a good location for that if you are self contained.
