List your business on our website 

For accommodation, activity and tour listings:

ManawatuNZ.co.nz is the regions official website for attracting people to visit, live, work, study and conference in Palmerston North city and Manawatū. It’s FREE to list selected tourism products and services on ManawatuNZ.co.nz as all of our listings are pulled from NewZealand.com – Tourism New Zealand’s official website.

Listings are FREE of charge, and with NewZealand.com and ManawatuNZ.co.nz receiving a collective 41 million visits each year it’s a fantastic way to raise the profile of your business.   

So, now’s the time to list your accommodation, activity, tour or transport business on NewZealand.com which will then feed through to ManawatuNZ.co.nz so you can tell consumers where you are and what you do.  

Getting Started

Go to register.newzealand.com/en/home to register. 
Make sure you save your log in details somewhere safe so you can access them easily.
Once your listing has been submitted and approved it will display on NewZealand.com and ManawatuNZ.co.nz 

Tips On Creating An Effective Listing:

  • Give yourself an uninterrupted half hour block to focus on creating your online listing. 
  • Have high resolution images (minimum 500 KB) ready to be uploaded. 
  • Ensure that your images adhere to NewZealand.com’s size criteria (minimum image width is 1080 pixels) and use captions, credits and landscape orientation where possible. 
  • Capture your business offering within about 230-500 words. Profile the benefits of your service to potential visitors, not just the features you offer. 
  • Ensure your product or business descriptions assume no knowledge about your tourism product or the region.  
  • Check out the Top Tips for listing on NewZealand.com
