Whanganui (formerly spelled Wanganui) was once the fifth largest city in New Zealand, and today it still has the dreamy historic buildings, world-class museums and established gardens developed over a century ago.
This built beauty perfectly complements the natural landscape of the city. Look in any direction and you’ll see a wide river, black or green sand beaches and rolling hills overlooking Mt Taranaki and Mt Ruapehu on the horizon.
