Palmerston North

Palmerston North is a sizeable city kept lively by a large population of university students. Enjoy the museums, restaurants and rose gardens.

Palmerston North City offers the sophistication and diversity of a major city with all the freedom and space of a provincial centre. Enjoy museums, cafes, and the vibrant arts scene.

The city of Palmerston North is bordered by the Tararua and Ruahine mountain ranges, spectacularly divided by the Te ApitiManawatu Gorge.

Museums, heritage collections and art galleries are prominent, and go hand in hand with the colourful array of cafes and dining options. Visit the New Zealand Rugby Museum and go on a journey to discover the story behind the sport that shaped New Zealand. See some of the world’s rarest rugby artefacts, and learn about our rugby greats.

A year-round calendar of events keeps the city alive and humming, from motorsport mayhem, to urban festivals of creativity and music that bring the streets alive with their colour and sounds. Accommodation options are wide and varied.

An interNationaly recognised theatre scene provides entertainment for all genres, while the local music scene thrives with a mixture of mainstream and ‘underground’ venues that cater to wide and varied tastes.
