A Manatū Taonga audio guide to New Plymouth's Sugar Loaf Islands and Paritutū. Check out the Ministry for Culture and Heritage's audio guide to the Sugar Loaf Islands and Paritutū in the image carousel above.

The Sugar Loaf Islands and Paritutū are the remnants of an enormous volcano -- the oldest in Taranaki. British explorer James Cook named the islands, which are the source of the mineral taranakite. Since 1991 they have been part of a protected marine park.
