This ultimate break ideal for family and history buffs starts at Cherry Grove, in Taumarunui and finishes 145km downstream at Pipiriki.

There is also plenty of time to explore some interesting historical sites close to the river, including the Nukunuku Museum and the Maraekowhai Niu Poles. As you progress further down the river, the farmland gives way to steep gorges and inaccessible native bush. Once past Whakahoro, you enter the main part of the spectacular Whanganui National Park. You can visit many places of interest including, Kirikiriroa, one of many old Maori village sites, Tarepokiore, "The Whirlpool", Tamatea Cave, John Coull Hut, Otumangu Landing, the Bridge to Nowhere, The "Drop Scene" and Puraroto Caves, on you way to historic Pipiriki and the end point of your journey.
