Experiencing the river is a must on a visit to our city. Take a trip on the water with one of our historic riverboats, the Paddle Steamer Waimarie or the M.V Wairua. Those taking in Whanganui over a weekend can also enjoy the colourful River Traders Market.
Experience the amazing street art of Whanganui Walls while enjoying the relaxed cafes and dining experiences that intersperse the CBD.
Whanganui’s legendary manaakitanga (hospitality and kindness) will ensure an excellent stay.
