$3.00 'Tongaporutu, Taranaki' gummed stamp.

The Tongaporutu area, north of New Plymouth, is one of the country’s best-kept secrets. With a spectacular coastline consisting of ancient caves, sheer cliff faces and an iron-sand beach, Tongaporutu is a changing canvas that dates back to the 1300s when the waka, Tokomaru, came ashore. At high tide, the coast can be a treacherous place as waves crash into the cliffs; at low tide, historic rock carvings become visible in the ancient caves.
