Discover one of the North Island gems in New Zealand’s crown on this half-day Whanganui sightseeing tour. Travel by minibus through Whanganui with a guide, and gain insight into the region’s rich history and heritage. Discover top attractions including the Bason Botanical Gardens, Virginia Lake, and the Whanganui Royal Opera House. Perhaps take the elevator to the top of the Durie Hill Tower (own expense), and enjoy sweeping views over the Tasman Sea, Mt. Ruapehu, and Mt Taranaki. This tour includes hotel pickup and drop-off at your Whanganui hotel.

Following a morning pickup at your accommodation in Whanganui, transfer to the Whanganui tourist office for 9:30am to meet your guide and begin your 2.5-hour tour.
First, take a seat in your minibus and spin onward to the Durie Hill Tower. On arrival, take the elevator (own expense) to the top and admire panoramic views over Whanganui’s rooftops to the Tasman Sea, Mt. Ruapehu, and Mt Taranaki.
From here, explore local landmarks including the Bason Botanical Gardens, the 19th-century military redoubt, Virginia Lake’s winter gardens and waterlily fountain, Wanganui Collegiate, and the Whanganui Royal Opera House — widely considered among the town’s more important sites of interest.
