The Whanganui River and Whanganui National Park

The Whanganui, the longest continually navigable river in New Zealand, flows through one of the country’s largest remaining areas of native lowland forest, much of which is protected in Whanganui National Park. Canoeing, jet-boating, hiking, and mountain biking are the main recreational activities here.
