Activities in Whanganui 

We have a range of activities both in the park and around the park. That's the charm of being located on the riverbank - everything is a stone's throw away. 

Paintball

Gear up and get ready for the ultimate, rainbow coloured fun. You will feel as though you're in an action movie, ducking around obstacles shooting paintballs at friends. Or you can practise your aim in our fun target practise shooting.

NZ's Last Paddle Steamer

Climb aboard the last working paddle steamer in New Zealand - Wanganui's own PS Waimarie. Enjoy a leisurely cruise up the river while enjoying a light tea from The Gallery onboard. You might also enjoy taking the kids to the Waimarie Engine room to see how the boat tinkers.

Park Activities

Never be bored at our holiday park. Our facilities include a swimming pool, private spa, two adventure playgrounds, a jumping pillow, bouncy castle, trikes, go-carts, pentaque, mountain bikes and kayaks.

Kayak

Kayaking gives you incredible views of Whanganui River that you just can't see from the road. To get the full river experience, the best thing you can do is jump on the river on a kayak. Hire our single or double kayaks for anywhere from an hour to a half day.

Parks, Gardens and Reserves 

Whanganui has a wide range of parks, gardens and reserves depending on whether you're interested in European buildings, bright flowers, bushwalks, historic buildings or lake strolls.
