Overall Experience
I would have regretted not going because I would not have known. In hindsight, I would have gotten just as much out of it with a much shorter program (and also saved thousands of dollars).

About

Whanganui is located on the west coast of the central North Island of New Zealand. The city is situated about 73 kilometres (1 hour drive) northeast of Palmerston North.

The city is surrounded by a thick outline of brush and fauna that decorates thousands of hectares with the beautiful wild native bush home only to New Zealand. An opening to the coast is situated to the west of the city, where the Castlecliff Domain looks out over the Tasman Sea.
