Whanganui

Whanganui (also known as 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. more

Although historically known as 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.

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