Nestled in green hills at the junction of the Whanganui and Ongarue Rivers, Taumarunui’s rich history starts with early Māori (who named it ‘the place of big shelter’) and rolls through the railways and associated pioneering industries of coalmining, forestry and farming.

Today this vibrant town is making a name for itself as an adventure capital with plenty of outdoor activities, including Rail Carts, Jet Boating, Canoe Trips, Trout Fishing, Hiking and Cycling Trails.
