Feilding has won ‘New Zealand’s Most Beautiful Town’ award no less than 16 times.
A vibrant hub of Manawatū with a diverse array of shops and eateries, here you’ll be met with a friendly smile, and the welcoming hospitality that has earned this town the label of ‘Friendly Feilding’.
Just 100 metres from the shopping centre, you’ll find the largest saleyard in the Southern Hemisphere. The best day of the week to visit is on a Friday when you can book a guided tour of the Saleyards(opens in new window) and experience the Feilding Farmers' Market.
Feilding is also a town of collectors – you can visit private museums featuring vintage motor vehicles, antique letter presses and more. Alternatively, for a slice of New Zealand settler culture and heritage, a visit to The Coach House Museum is a must.
