Manawatu and Palmerston North

State Highway 1 between Wellington and Auckland passes through Manawatu on the west coast of the North Island. An increasing number of travellers now visit the area instead of driving straight through.

The land in Manawatu is mostly used for sheep and dairy farming. The city of Palmerston North is the main centre and is known for its cultural and educational focus. Massey University attracts full time students and many extramural students. Other cultural attractions are the historic Regent Theatre, Centrepoint Theatre, the City Library and Te Manawa which includes the Science Centre, Museum and Art Gallery. The Museum specialises in Maori culture and the gallery in post-1960s art.

Also well worth a visit are some world-renowned private and commercial gardens and the Tararua Wind Farm. .

Those who choose to visit Manawatu are well catered for with an excellent range of accommodation, and restaurants offering Indian, Thai, Chinese, Italian, French, Pacific, Oriental and traditional New Zealand meals. Bars, nightclubs movie theatres and golf courses offer entertainment for the adults, and swimming pools, playgrounds, the Science Centre and the Owlcatraz Educational Park cater for the children. Choose a track suited to your family's fitness and the whole family can go walking together on one of the many walks in the district.

To get an idea of farming life in the Manawatu visit the Feilding stock saleyards which are the largest in the Southern Hemisphere or drop in on the annual Central District Field Days at Feilding's Manfield Park.
