View More

Wanganui is a region located north of Wellington and is known for its maori culture and heritage, the Whanganui National Park and the mighty Whanganui River - the longest navigable river in the country. Wanganui City rests on the banks of the Whanganui River.

Although previously called Wanganui, the New Zealand Geographic Board recommended that the name be changed to "Whanganui", and the government decided in December 2009 that while either spelling was acceptable, Crown agencies would use the Whanganui spelling.

Wanganui main centres include Taihape, Wanganui, Palmerston North and Levin.
