    Your Wanganui hosts welcome you to their lovely city with canoe, jet boat or paddle steamer being our launch pad to our historic and beautiful river.  The cultural centre, including  the art gallery, library, and museum, is outstanding and the city is noted for its sporting  facilities.    
    The Manawatu has as its urban centre Palmerston North - a progressive inland  city encompassing Massey University, the International Japanese College, Agriculture and Horticulture Research Centres and excellent civic gardens which include the only Southern Hemisphere rose trial grounds.  There is easy access to many scenic areas, including, tramping, skiing and fishing. 
    The Kapiti Coast is a residential area,  within commuting distance of Wellington and also a retirement centre and takes the form of a coastal plain between the Tararua mountain range and the Tasman Sea.  It is an important fruit, vegetable, and dairy farming area that supplies the city of Wellington with much of its food needs. 
  
  The Wairarapa is a farming area with many large sheep farms.  At the north is the world renowned Mount Bruce bird sanctuary, whilst many vineyards are rising in the established orchards to the south.  The Wairarapapa is home to many craftspeople and the regionís wines are sold around the world, as well as at the vineyard.  
   
   
Wellington has a very beautiful harbour, with glorious views from points around the city, the marine  drive and the botanic gardens (Use the cable car).

 It is the capital of NZ and so the Parliament  sits here. (Tours are available.)  Visit the Art Gallery and the Museum of NZ, "Te Papa", with its  walk to Queen's Wharf across open areas.  Catch the ferry to the South Island from here.
