Whether you explore by canoe, kayak or jetboat, the Whanganui River is endlessly fascinating. It's the longest navigable waterway in New Zealand - stretching 290 kilometres from Mount Tongariro to the historic city of Wanganui, which has established itself as a centre of excellence for the fine arts.

River Adventures

Every river has its specialities. The Whanganui offers canoe and kayak safaris; the Rangitikei provides thrills with bungy jumping and rafting; the Manawatu has jetboating and kayaking in the gorge.


Mountains and Valleys

The Whanganui National Park's rugged valleys provide wonderful outdoor experiences infused with a rich Maori and European history of settlement. In the Tararua and Ruahine ranges, hiking trails take you far and wide.


Farming Life

The region is a major agricultural power, leading in beef, sheep and deer production. Farmstays allow visitors to experience life on a New Zealand farm, not to mention some excellent country cooking.
