Sure, gangs exist and there are issues from time to time but isn’t that the case in most cities. It’s time we changed that perception and presented the real Wanganui. A delightful, friendly community city that we all love and is perfect for family living. People come, people return, people stay! It accommodates your every need and it is stress free – no traffic congestion, realistic property values, great for retail and leisure and superb facilities. Give us a try – like so many, you’ll be pleasantly surprised.
Here’s an excerpt that has been written about the city – but please, go ahead, explore for yourself and don’t hesitate to provide feedback. We want this site to “represent” the city, the good folk that live here, and all that goes on around us.
Wanganui’s main street, Victoria Avenue, has been hailed as one of the finest examples of mainstreet restoration in New Zealand. Edwardian-style gas lamps, garden seats and terracotta pavers offset historic buildings containing a variety of national chains and upmarket boutiques. Specialty stores, antique shops, galleries and craft outlets add to temptations. Outside, hanging floral baskets enhance seasonal street plantings. The Trafalgar Square shopping mall is close by, within easy walking distance of Victoria Avenue. It contains mostly national chain stores, a supermarket and a food court. Satellite shopping areas serve the suburbs.
For a small city, Wanganui offers a diverse range of dining experiences to suit most tastes and pockets. Dine in, dial for takeaways or collect your own. Several restaurants are known for their signature dishes, using the best local produce and New Zealand’s top quality meat and game. Enjoy traditional Kiwi fare, wild game, Celtic, Thai, Chinese, Indian, Mongolian or Stone Grill delicacies. Eat a la carte, from the smorgasbord, a set menu, or the buffet. A thriving Café and Bar scene provides for those seeking a more casual style of dining. Convenient, accessible Fast Food outlets are well represented.
