Whanganui, previously spelled Wanganui, is a city in the Manawatū-Whanganui region of New Zealand. The city is located on the west coast of the North Island at the mouth of the Whanganui River, New Zealand's longest navigable waterway.

Whanganui was one of the first cities to be founded in New Zealand. Whanganui, meaning 'big bay' or ‘big harbour', comes from the great river that flows through it.

Look in any direction and you’ll see a wide river, black sand beaches or rolling green hills with views of Mt Taranaki and Mt Ruapehu on the horizon.

One of Whanganui's more unusual visitor attractions is the earthbound elevator that rises to the top of Durie Hill. The regional museum has a magnificent collection of Lindauer portraits and Maori treasures.
