Whanganui is a city on the West Coast of the North Island, and was one of the first cities to be founded in New Zealand. Whanganui means ‘big bay’ or ‘big harbour’, and was named this because of the great river that flows through it. The Whanganui River, New Zealand’s longest navigable waterway, runs from Mount Tongariro to the sea.
Home to approximately 43,000 people, Whanganui is picturesque and has much to show off. It’s just a couple of hours’ drive from Wellington, Mount Ruapehu and Mount Tongariro, or a quick flight from Auckland. Prominent heritage buildings in the city include the Whanganui Opera House and the Sarjeant Art Gallery. Whanganui is home to New Zealand’s largest arts community with more fine arts, mixed media and glass artists than anywhere else in the country, and boasts the country’s only Glass School.
Whanganui has a number of pre-school, primary and secondary schools. The closest university is Massey University in Palmerston North which is only 1 hour away.
The region enjoys a temperate climate, with slightly above the national average sunshine (2100 hours per annum), and about 900 mm of annual rainfall. Several light frosts are normally experienced in winter.
