Mō tō mātou Rōpū - About the Team
Manawatu is famous for its effortless blend of city and rural living; here you can choose your ideal lifestyle, from peaceful rural villages, to bustling townships, or city life. The region includes the charming towns of Feilding, Kimbolton, Apiti, Himatangi Beach, Linton and Ashhurst to name a few, and at the centre of it all is the city of Palmerston North. The region spans 2,624 km² with 120,000 people choose to call Manawatu home. It encompasses breathtakingly beautiful parks, rivers and mountain ranges, including the famous Tararua and Ruahine Ranges, and sweeps out to the rugged west coast beaches of Himatangi and Tangimoana. It is less than two hours from New Zealand's capital city Wellington and one hour from Whanganui. It is also an easy drive to North Island ski fields, Hawke's Bay wineries and Mount Taranaki. What makes Palmerston North city and Manawatū more liveable than most is it being a safe environment for raising a family.
