MEMBERS SINCE 2001, 25 exchanges all over the wonderful world meeting lots of homelinkers. Our house is in a very quiet area and we are 10-15 mins walking distance to shops, Saturday market, city centre, art galleries and glass blowing gallery. 15 mins drive to beach and 10 mins to small lake. Wanganui River activities: paddle steamer cruise, canoeing, jet sprints. Maori history, heritage buildings, Maori & riverboat museums, bush walks, Virginia Lake (small lake in city).

Wanganui is 2.5 hours north of Wellington on west coast of the north island, 1.5 hours south of Mt Ruapehu, or 2 hours east of Mt Egmont/Taranaki. We take our visitors on a local drive around if wanted. We can Skype to finalise details if you wish.

We visit Christchurch each year, and plan to travel down to Blenheim and Dunedin in 2016. Wellington, New Plymouth okay as well for long weekends.

Master Games 2017 & Vintage Car Rally 2016 will be in Wanganui, so stay with us. We look forward to hearing from you.
