With the Whanganui National Park on one side and the Tongariro World Heritage area on the other, Taumarunui is a perfect base for adventure.
Located at the junction of the Whanganui and Ongarue Rivers, Taumarunui is the launching point for canoe trips into the Whanganui National Park. With waterways in every direction, it’s also a popular trout fishing destination. In winter, the town is a cost-effective place to stay if you aim to ski Whakapapa on Mount Ruapehu. Taumarunui has a comprehensive range of shops and services, a good choice of accommodation and a tasty selection of eating places. The local golf course is often praised for its scenery. 28 kilometres south of Taumarunui is the Raurimu Spiral - a most amazing feat of railway engineering. It’s best appreciated from the train.
