Hawera is located in the Taranaki region, on the south-west coast of the North Island. The area is used mainly for dairy farming, and the town is surrounded by plains of farmland, which make the regal shape of Mount Taranaki even more dramatic. With a population of 11,000, Hāwera is the second-largest town in the Taranaki region of New Zealand's North Island. It is near the coast of the South Taranaki Bight, 75 kilometres south of New Plymouth.

The site of Hawera as the closest town to Mt Taranaki also gives it a claim to fame in New Zealand; it’s twenty minutes from the base of the mountain. It’s a small town, and may not offer the soaring mountains of Queenstown or the nightlife of other New Zealand cities, but Hawera has a lot going for it. The town is also home to several fascinating museums, the most famous being Tawhiti Museum. It’s regarded as the best private museum in the country, and draws visitors for its life sized human figures.
