  • Bit of an industrial tower, but has an interesting history according to a local I was chatting to. may as well see it while youre there!  more »
  • This monument/tower was built after WWi. Has excellent views over Wanganui is well worth the effort. You can drive up to the tower or take a lift which brings you up near the foot of the tower.  more »
  • Fantastic memorial to brave soldiers in WW1. Superb panoramic views over 360 degrees of surrounding town and countryside. !&^ steps but take your time and enjoy the views.  more »
