Elephant Rock was a natural attraction for Taranaki. But now the  ‘trunk’ of the rock has now slipped into the sea.
Part of an iconic rock formation in Taranaki, known as Elephant Rock, has collapsed, with the elephant’s ‘trunk’ completely wiped out.
The rock in the shape of an elephant is located near the Three Sisters in Tongaporutu, which is about an hour’s drive north from New Plymouth.
Many visitors from around New Zealand and the world come to visit the beautiful Taranaki coastline. One of the main attractions is the Elephant Rock. Locals hope the loss of its trunk won’t affect tourism.

  1. That would have been a great seeing the elephant with its trunk on. I guess it has not a look now.
