The views from around the mountain are beautiful. Wanganui offers an impressive array of sporting and recreational facilities and venues. The Whanganui River sweeps through the valley over which the city is spread, and is the longest navigable waterway in the North Island. The river provides facilities for rowing, sailing, canoeing, water skiing and windsurfing. The city also boasts excellent sporting facilities and has an international reputation as being one of the finest sports training regions in the world.
