Whanganui Family Activities

Whanganui has a little something to offer every member of the family, whether they are interested in adventure, water sports, history or relaxing. Our holiday park is the hub of all family fun activities in Whanganui. 

What our park has to offer families

Whanganui TOP 10 Holiday Park was designed with families in mind. Just check any of the positive reviews left on our Trip Advisor by happy families. Water lovers will enjoy a sunrise kayak out on the river. After a long day, jump in the pool with the kids to cool down, or supervise from our many shaded deck chairs as your kids zip down the slide.

Adventurous families can send their kids loose on our two adventure playgrounds. Older kids may enjoy hiring out a mountain bike, or trike ride. 

After a long day exploring with the kids, wind down in the bubbles of our private spa. Or sit back on the deck of your standard family cabin and enjoy watching the river stream by. If you want to sit back and watch TV feel free to hire out a DVD from reception or watch your favourite Netflix series from one of our deluxe units, motels or the communal lounge.
