Beautiful Whanganui

Unforgettable Whanganui

Whanganui is ideally situated between Rotorua and Wellington, and is a natural stop for people travelling through the North Island.

From Wellington, Whanganui is a two and a half hour easy drive, passing through the small towns of Levin, Foxton, and Bulls. Take State Highway 1 to Bulls and State Highway 3 from Bulls to Whanganui.

From Rotorua and Taupo, Whanganui is a scenic drive through some of the most beautiful parts of the North Island. State Highway 3 takes you down the country from Rotorua, through Taupo with State Highway 4 taking you through to National Park, Raetihi and then on to Whanganui.  You may wish to stop at National Park and enjoy a days skiing on Mount Ruapehu before heading down to Whanganui. The skifields are only an hour and a half drive from the city.

As an alternative route to State Highway 4, take the historic and scenic Whanganui River Road from Raetihi to Pipiriki and down to Whanganui.  This road takes you through the beautiful Whanganui National Park and the settlements of Jerusalem – home to James K Baxter, Mother Aubert and two historical New Zealand figures – Ranana and Atene, with many historical points of interest along the way.  The River Road is renowned for its unspoilt vistas but it is a scenic route and not for those in a hurry as it is windy.
