Today you'll travel to Whanganui, set on the banks of the Whanganui River (meaning "big river" in Maori).
Play the Whanganui Golf Club, known locally as Belmont. Once host to Gene Sarazen in the 1930s, the course has since hosted many national amateur and professional events. Laid out on sandy land, it is built across both flat and rolling landscapes.
Afterwards, learn more about the town's history by exploring the Opera House and Sarjeant Gallery or take a cruise on the PS Waimarie, New Zealand's only coal-fired paddle steamer.
