A sacred place for the local Maori, Whanganui is the city and national park lining New Zealand’s longest navigable river. Although it may have been used as a highway historically, today, the Whanganui River boasts a breathtaking journey by canoe, jet boat or paddle steamer. While the river, which has a status as a living entity, often takes all the limelight, there’s a creative city beside stunning sandy beaches that’s also well worth exploring.
