About Whanganui

Whanganui is an urban area and district situated on the west coast of the North Island and is a part of the Manawatu and Whanganui region, with most of the town lying on the northwestern bank of the Whanganui River.

It is famous for having one of the most temperate climates in the world, as its unique location means it is sheltered from the worst weather conditions. Whanganui is ideally situated between Wellington and Rotorua, so it is a common stop-off for those travelling through the North Island.
