The Manawatu region is a major agricultural power, leading in beef, sheep and deer production. Farmstays allow visitors to experience life on a New Zealand farm, not to mention some excellent country cooking.

The Rangitikei River supports an excellent trout fishery. You'll also find opportunities for bungy jumping, white water and scenic rafting.

Golf courses are sprinkled throughout the area, a great way to soak up the scenery and all the fresh air you can handle.

To the south is the university city of Palmerston North, one of the country's largest provincial cities. The central business district of Palmerston North is centred on a large leafy square.

Many of Palmerston North's original stores built in the 1920's and 1930's have been restored and are now charming boutiques, cafes and great restaurants. It is a good base for exploring the many large private gardens in the surrounding countryside.

Explore the landscape of the Manawatu and make some special discoveries.
