The city of Wanganui sits at the Tasman Sea end of the wild and wonderful Whanganui River. Discover heritage buildings, a paddle steamer and much more.
The picturesque river city of Wanganui has a long history. During the early days of European settlement, it was an important trading centre. The river served as a main highway for the transport of goods and people. Prominent heritage buildings in the city include the Royal Wanganui Opera House and the Sarjeant Art Gallery. Take time to explore the restored heritage areas, then board the paddle steamer for a memorable river cruise. One of Wanganui's more unusual visitor attractions is the earthbound elevator that rises to the top of Durie Hill. The regional museum has a magnificent collection of Lindauer portaits and Maori treasures.
