By Visit Whanganui
The Whanganui River - the namesake of the region and township, provides the heart and soul of this little corner of New Zealand's North Island.
The city of Whanganui sits at the Tasman Sea end of the wild and wonderful Whanganui River. Discover heritage buildings, a paddle steamer and much more.
A tiny riverside settlement, Pipiriki is the southern gateway to Whanganui National Park, and the last stop on the famous Whanganui River Journey.
