About Palmerston North
“Palmy” is a city abuzz with youthful energy nourished by Massey University, New Zealand’s largest institution for the life sciences, agricultural, horticultural and veterinary teaching and research.
As one of the country’s rural hubs, the region is awash with real New Zealand attractions, including the March Central District Field Days, the largest regional agricultural field days in New Zealand, attracting more than 500 exhibitors and more than 38,000 visitors.
Many of Palmerston North’s original 1920s and 1930s buildings have been restored and are now charming boutiques and cafés, and the city is a good base for exploring the many large private gardens in the surrounding countryside.
Gravity Canyon is the place to go for adrenaline junkies. You can jump off attached to the country’s longest bridge bungy at 80 metres, free-fall 50 metres on a giant swing, or ride an amazing 1.1km long flying fox.
The beautiful Manawatu countryside is also a magnet for hikers and bikers; and for sports fans there’s the attraction of some of the greatest mementos of All Black rugby in the New Zealand Rugby Museum.
