Exploring to adoring

From exploring to adoring, embark on a breathtaking adventure by testing your endurance on the picturesque walking tracks of Te Āpiti Manawatū Gorge.

Nestled between Palmerston North and the Manawatū and Tararua Districts, Te Āpiti – Manawatū Gorge stands as one of the country’s most iconic natural playgrounds. Enveloped in ancient bush and home to diverse wildlife, the gorge is steeped in legend, with tales of the mighty Whātonga, an ancient warrior standing guard over the forest. Explore the walking tracks to witness ancient bush, native birds, plants, and the unique maidenhair fern, found only in the Manawatū in New Zealand.

For a more idyllic stroll, Bledisloe Park near Massey University offers rolling remedies along the riverside. A cool retreat with shaded native bush and a swimming hole, perfect for beating the heat on a hot Palmy day. Join the native birds on a path through one of Palmerston North's native bush remnants, linking with the Turitea Stream, creating an oasis of calm with babbling water, birdsong, and fresh bush scent. Don't forget your togs, as the stream and swimming hole are a perfect place for a swim.
