Manawatu is off the beaten track, situated on the south west of the North Island. It extends between the Manawatu River in the south and the Rangitikei River in the north, overlooked by the Tararua ranges and enclosed by the Tasman Sea on the West.
Amidst the peaceful country scenery, just outside of Taihape, you will find Gravity Canyon for your shot of adrenaline. Choose between an exhilarating 200 kph flying fox, the North Island's highest 80m tandem bungy or the most extreme 50m pure free-fall swing, which is sure to get you screaming. While you are in the Manawatu take the two hour maritime heritage tour on the paddle steamer Waimarie up the Wanganui River whilst enjoying a delicious lunch or dinner cruise. Waiuru National Army Museum is a place where all New Zealand families can reflect on the courage of our ANZAC soldiers who fought for our country. You will be inspired by the stories, learn lots from the military exhibits and most likely take a selfie on the military tanks on display.
