Breathe Deep – Best of Manawatū Skies

BREATHE DEEP – BEST OF MANAWATŪ SKIES

Take to the skies to explore our beautiful region. We’ve compiled some of the best spots to view the never-ending Manawatū skies. The milky way is easy to spot on a clear night, with New Zealand skies blessed with a front row seat to the centre of this milky, magical wonder of nature. And with more-active-than-usual solar wind activity, this year is the best ever for a chance to set eyes on the mystical Aurora Australis!

OPIKI TOLL BRIDGE

Night sky at Opiki Toll Bridge Manawatu

What is now no more than skeletal remains, the Opiki Toll Bridge was once a critical part of the booming flax industry. Now though, it makes for a stunning backdrop to the evening sky.

HIMATANGI BEACH

Himatangi Beach Manawatu

Where the crow flies, or in this case ‘where the seagulls play’ when it comes to Himatangi Beach. Here’s a piece of stunning west coast beach for your viewing pleasure. Breathe in the salty air and if you’re lucky, spot Kapiti Island on the horizon and beyond to the tip of the South Island.

TE ĀPITI WIND FARM

Te Apiti Wind Farm Manawatu

There’s something about these giant guardians on our mountain tops, that puts things into perspective.

MANAWATŪ RIVER

Manawatu River

Taking a moment to soak in your surroundings is grounding, and what better place than beside our mighty awa, the Manawatū River. As the sun sets in the west, the Manawatū River lights up with dappled waters of silky colours as it prepares to sleep for the night.

RUAHINE RANGES

Ruahine Ranges

What better way to get some perspective than from the very tops of the ranges overlooking Papaioea?
