Manawatu-Whanganui

Located in the lower North Island, the region is named after its two main rivers. The Whanganui to the north and west is the country’s longest navigable river. The Manawatu in the south east creates a large fertile plain and runs through the largest city, Palmerston North. The region’s landscape spans mountain ranges, the spectacular Manawatu Gorge, picturesque farmland, coastal plains and beaches.
