Manawatu-Wanganui is located in the south of the North Island of the country. It incorporates the busy towns of Wanganui and Palmerston North. The region is also home to at least four large volcanoes, including Mount Ruapehu, which is one of the most active volcanoes in the world, having last erupted in 1996. The other popular volcanoes include Ngauruhoe and Tongariro.
The national parks Pureora, Tongariro and Whanganui are home to some of the world's most exotic creatures like the Parma Wallaby. The parks are also places where many adventure sport activities are offered including whitewater rafting, jet boating and skiing.
