On the North Taranaki coast, near Tongaporutu, you can see two (formerly three) 25 metre rock formations known as the Three Sisters. Next to the sisters is another formation called Elephant Rock which, as you would expect, looks a lot like an elephant. Interestingly, there were four sisters at the turn of the century, but the sea is claiming them one at a time. For great views of the Three Sisters, turn down Pilot Road, which is on the seaward side of State Highway 3 north of the Tongaporutu Bridge. If you want to get down on the sand with the formations, turn off South Highway 3 down Clifton Road, which is south of the Tongaporutu Bridge. At low tide you can walk alongside the river and around the point to find the formations. In nearby caves you can also view a rock drawing of a curious six-toed foot.
