We have eight booked so far for this trip with several more people thinking about it.
The Taumaranui Holiday Park is right beside the river, and as usual there will be breakfast Saturday and Sunday morning and dinner Saturday night. You will need to bring your sleeping bags. Drive down Friday, back Sunday.
Cost for this trip will be $95.00 and should be deposited into the AFAC trips account. 03-1527-0055977-000.
At the moment there is plenty accommodation, but to make sure that we are not disappointed we need to book as early as possible, so if you are coming let us know ASAP.
The Wanganui is a truly iconic river which rises from the volcanic plateau and winds its way to the coast at Wanganui. (Great canoe trip.) We will be based at the Holiday Park in Taumaranui. on the bank of the river – great place to stay – have a look at the photo on their website http://taumarunuiholidaypark.co.nz/
It’s a ‘big river’ like the Tongariro providing a great range of fishing water. A very reliable river from a ‘catching fish’ point of view.
Driving time from Auckland is around 3hours and 45 minutes = 288k’s
