Puketapu Hill and the old course of the Whanganui RiverImage: DOC
A hidden patch of forest so close to Whanganui! Cool off in the shade of the tall trees and see what you can discover. Enjoy the short walking track and see how many types of plants you can name.
Walk around the bend! Hundreds of years ago Puketapu Hill stood at the end of a long narrow-necked peninsula, forcing the river to flow in almost a complete circle around it. Get your boots on and check it out!
