Where to stay in Palmerston North

About Palmerston North

Set on the banks of the Manawatu River, Palmerston North is an urban city with a rural heart and a young, upbeat vibe thanks to Massey University. It's surrounded by the rich farmlands of New Zealand's Manawatu region, home to some of the country's best produce.

Things to do

Blending history, art and culture, the Te Manawa Museum offers a fascinating glimpse at New Zealand's rich Maori roots. Inside you'll find a treasure trove of artefacts, interactive exhibits and a kid-friendly play area.

New Zealand boasts one of the best rugby teams on the planet. There's no better place to discover the history of the famous All Blacks than at the New Zealand Rugby Museum. It's packed full of memorabilia, from vintage jerseys to the official whistle used to start every Rugby World Cup.

Palmerston North is a great base for exploring the Manawatu region. The 10-kilometre-long Manawatu Gorge Track is a scenic place to stretch your legs, winding past panoramic lookouts and hidden swimming spots. The Rangitikei River is another hub for outdoor activities, with opportunities to go kayaking, white-water rafting and bungy jumping.

Palmerston North is anchored by The Square, a spacious public plaza that features tree-shaded benches, manicured lawns, a giant chess board and Maori carvings. On weekends The Square hosts events, such as the Food Truck Feast and the Village Night Market.

Getting around

Thanks to its flat landscape, bicycles are a fun and eco-friendly way to get around Palmerston North. Rental cars and a well-serviced bus system make it easy to explore the Manawatu region. Palmerston North Airport is a 10-minute drive out of town.
