Whanganui Heritage

Architecture from many eras is a major feature of Whanganui. Victorian and Edwardian treasures co-exist with fine examples of mid-twentieth century modern architecture. Marae, homesteads, memorials and civic buildings provide a strong sense of place and identity and the concentration of significant heritage buildings found here is rare in New Zealand.
