Palmerston North is a city in the North Island of New Zealand and the seat of the Manawatu-Wanganui region. Museum-lovers will appreciate Whanganui Regional Museum and Coach House Museum. Do some cultural sightseeing at New Zealand Glassworks and Aratoi Wairarapa Museum of Art and History. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Palmerston North: Fensham Bush Reserve (in Carterton), Whanganui (Quartz Museum & Durie Hill Memorial Tower) and Fantasy Cave (in Dannevirke). And it doesn't end there: enjoy the sand and surf at Foxton Beach, see the interesting displays at Te Awahou Nieuwe Stroom, stop by Waireka Honey Centre, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Cathedral of the Holy Spirit.
