There’s something to be said for natural beauty, but when it comes to the natural beauty of Manawatu & Whanganui, there’ll be sights that’ll render you speechless. If you’re all about the country life, then get ready to open your heart to the heartland of the north. From stunning mountains, to the breath-taking west coach beaches, it’s all here, minus the busy tourist crowds.

Before you know it, you can head from the beach to the bushland and take in some wonderful wilderness experiences. You know you’re in the thick of nature here when you lay eyes on the Whanganui River. It starts its 300-kilometre journey from the volcanic plateau of Mt Tongariro, through Taumarunui and into Whanganui.

Meander through the stunning nature by foot, or cruise one of the many scenic driving routes, but remember to stop for a chat with a local as you’re sure to get a fantastic insight into the heritage of this beautiful region.
