If that's not exciting enough we can organise a game of Paintball for you and your friends. And if you fancy a run around or game of ball there's a large open field next to the park.
We have a Boat Ramp where you can launch your own boat or jet-ski or take out one of our kayaks. Or we can take you 5 or 8kms up river and you can make your own leisurely way back to the park by kayak taking in some of the fabulous scenery you just don't get to see by car.
Most of our accommodation has outdoor decking and seating areas, some of them with great views of the river, others where you can relax watching your children playing on the playground. There's plenty of picnic areas around the park, some shady, some sunny - you choose. Relax on a bench or blanket by the river and watch the Waimarie Paddle Steamer go by - we're the only holiday park to get a regular 'toot-toot' from an original paddle steamer as it passes right by our grounds!
And then there's Wanganui itself - there's so much to do in town and the surrounding area, you won't want to leave!
You'll find loads to do to fill your holiday. Wanganui is full of rich history and gorgeous Victorian and Edwardian buildings - why not take a Heritage Trail, then there's the Waimarie Paddle Steamer for river cruises and museum, Durie Hill Elevator and Memorial Tower for outstanding views all the way over to Mt Ruapehu and Mt Taranaki on a clear day, Virginia Lake, Riverland Family Park, Kowhai Park, Bason Botanic Gardens, The No.12 Tram, Art Galleries and Studios, Museums, Beaches, Walkways, a great Café Culture and so much more.
Feeling sporty? With more sports events per capita than anywhere else in New Zealand, this is the place to be.
Plus it's all surrounded by km after km of beautiful countryside and a wide variety of great walks, whether you're looking for a couple of hours or a full day, there's a walk nearby to suit all abilities.
Just a short drive from our park you'll find even more: Bushy Park, Windemere Berry Farm (serving THE best fresh fruit ice cream you'll ever taste), Ashley Park Animal Farm, Paloma Gardens, Tawhiti's Museum and more, so much more.
But don't forget the Whanganui River herself! Take a kayak, go on a jet boat tour to the Bridge to Nowhere, cycle the River Road, or just meander along the walkways in the city, but be sure to take some time to soak up the atmosphere of this mighty river.
Kō au te Āwa, kō te Āwa kō au - I am the river, the river is me.
Your friendly hosts, Ben & Jeannie and the Whanganui River TOP 10 Team are looking forward to welcoming you and doing everything we can to help you enjoy your holiday in Wanganui.
