Palmerston North Holidays Overview

 

Palmerston North is located at the foot of the Tararua Mountain Range, on the banks of the Manawatu River. This large regional city has a population of about 80 000 and is a 7 hour drive to Auckland and a 2 hour drive from Wellington. Palmerston North was cleared in 1866 and the first European settlers started arriving in 1871. The original industries for the region were sheep and cattle farming, and it became an important road and railway link. The city is now known as the Knowledge City, being home to both the of Massey University and the New Zealand Dairy Research Institute.
 
Palmerston North, often called Palmy by the locals, is a garden city with loads of culture, sports facilities, shopping, cafes, bars and restaurants. There are many restored buildings dating from the 1920's and 1930's to add to the character, along with outdoor sculptures.
 
This is a city with literally something for everyone of any age including walking through the amazing gardens, parks, and national parks, to visiting museums, galleries, and shops.
