Manawatu-Wanganui

Wanganui is a great place to spend time while travelling around New Zealand and is towards the lower half of New Zealand's North Island. Choose your accommodation option from the links above, there's a great choice from backpackers, bed and breakfasts, motels, hotels, lodges, holiday homes or camping grounds.

Some of its most popular attractions include the Riverboat Centre, Regional Museum, Sarjeant Gallery, Durie Hill Elevator/Tower, the Tramshed, Opera House, River Traders Market, Glass Art, the Mainstreet, the River Road and the Bridge to Nowhere.

The Wanganui River is a big part of this region and jet boating up and canoeing back down the river is the order of the day. The wide flat river is safe and the scenery is incredible. Another wonderful way to enjoy the river is on the 100 year old Waimarie. The Wanganui River Boat cruises 13km up the river from town and is a great way to spend some time soaking up the splendour that is the Wanganui River.

The Manawatu district has lots of gardens and parks to explore and many family friendly walks and scenic tracks with lovely rural outlooks.

If it is an adventure in the outdoors that you are after, then come to the right place. You will find the Manawatu Gorge high speed jet experience thrilling. The unsealed Takapari Road is a playground for all off roading, 4WD, mountain bikes, horse rides or hikes, through alpine bush and along mountain ridges you can experience spectacular views of the Ruahine ranges' ridges and gorges. Or you could always take to the skies and appreciate the vastness of Manawatu's rugged terrain from a plane.

There are lots of golf courses in and around Palmerston North. Some 9-hole, some 18-hole, some with spectacular views, some invitingly friendly, something for every golfer.

The urban centres have many opportunities for visitors to enjoy the region's art, culture and heritage through theatres, homesteads, museums, galleries and even a replica Dutch windmill. There are plenty of opportunities to indulge in retail therapy and a chance to take home something with a distinct New Zealand flavour. The whole area is family and child friendly and there is certainly no lack of fun things to do.
