3 places that come to mind

Let’s make a top 5 places to visit list!

The topic of the discussion here in the Whanganui District Council office at the moment is:

“Where do we take our relatives/friends/parents while they are visiting Whanganui over the holidays?”

We are tossing around different cafes, restaurants, walking routes and more…

But the question we really want to find out is what are the things which are unique to our district which our obliging visitors will remember when they return to the place they call home?

Let’s come together on this one and put forward our ideas as local experts to create a top 5 places list to visit that say “Whanganui”.

A place to eat, experience art, bask in the ambience of our friendly district….let’s make a guide for all us local chauffeurs.

Drop your favourite places, things to do, or hidden gems below, or better yet, give us your thoughts via this survey. If you have an image, video, poem or anything that says #Whanganui = All I need, please provide these through the survey link.
