Palmerston North i-Site

We highly recommend visiting the Palmerston North i-Site.  They have a huge array of information and the ladies were truly helpful.  Located in the Square, the i-Site is in the middle of the square and very accessible.

Te Manawa Museum of Art, Science and History

Once you’ve finished viewing the Rugby Museum, downstairs in the same building is Te Manawa.  The Museum is interactive and we just enjoyed the memory flash-back of the caravan and tractor.  We watched a young child and her dad in the make-believe grocery store, selecting products and paying at the register – the young child was having a great time.

Linklater Reserve Walkway

Grasslands, walkways, playground, swing-bridge are just some of the things you’ll experience at Linklater.  This wonderful park in Palmerston North is being further developed over the upcoming years. It is also a dog-friendly lead-free park so if you’ll see a dog or two racing around.

The airport is nearby so you can sit and watch the planes takeoff and land.  Information signs are located throughout the park if you’re interested in nature and the Linklater history.

Te Apiti Wind Farm

You’ll find the wind farm located on the Saddle Road between Woodville and Palmerston North.  Te Apiti was New Zealand’s first wind farm to supply electricity into the national grid.

Public viewing is available every day so you can check out the wind farm and admire the farming countryside.  Stand next to them and see just how tall they are – 70 metres high.  They have three blades – each is 35 metres in length. It was hard to imagine how tall these were until we stood next to them.
