Twin share per person NZD$3,690
Single SupplementNZD$750

The picturesque river city of Whanganui is one of New Zealand’s most distinctive places to visit. The city’s history is a rich amalgam of Maori and settler cultures with the river being central to its historic, cultural, and artistic development. The Whanganui River was known as the ‘Rhine of New Zealand’ and served as an important transport route for Maori and European settlers. It is still the heart of the city both physically and spiritually.

On this extensive tour of Whanganui and surrounds you will see a city filled with galleries and buzzing with creative energy, visit historic homesteads and enjoy two tours with a local historian. An exhilarating jet boat ride to the Bridge to Nowhere and a river trip on an historic steam boat will give you chances to experience the river and you will attend the annual Vintage Weekend, showcasing heritage attractions, classic cars, a street fair, live music and the chance to mingle with the locals.
