Fodor's Review

One of the largest wind farms in the Southern Hemisphere makes a dramatic sight on the ranges that overlook Palmerston North, and a drive up Saddle Road to the largest windmills (there is a parking lot beneath a huge one) yields fantastic views. Returning to the city via Woodville and the Manawatu Gorge makes an enjoyable, scenic road trip. Maps are available from the Palmerston North i-SITE.
