Driving over Saddle Road

Manawatu Gorge is the gateway to Palmerston North City coming from Hawke's Bay and Wairarapa. An alternative route is the Saddle Road.


It takes you over the Ruahine Range, a somewhat windy route just past Woodville.  You need a bit of pep to make the climb, but you're rewarded with views of  rolling, lush farmland and towering wind turbines peaking through as you get closer to Te Apiti Windfarm lookout.

It's a magic drive, where the views just get better and more expansive as you go.

From Woodville, turn right just beyond the town onto Woodlands Road, then left onto Oxford Road.

If driving from Ashhurst, the route is clearly signposted from the main street of Cambridge Avenue.
