Here on this picture you can see the beautiful region of New Ply Plymouth under a beautiful rainbow. New Plymouth is located in New Zealand on the North Island. It is also the main city and harbour of the Taranaki region. The New Plymouth has been for centuries a historical place where the Maori tribes were living.  The area of New Plymouth is mainly used for dairy farming. The boat of William Bryant sailed to the area during the year 1840 where the early Europeans settled for some time before. There were not only settlers from United Kingdom when in 1841 was declared as New Plymouth town, but they came also from China, Poland, India, Switzerland and Netherlands. When more and more settlers came in the region conflict started between them and the Maoris, because the Maoris did not want to sell their land and this created a war of ten years.
