He Ara Kotahi Bridge

Top choice Bridge

in Palmerston North

Palmerston's North's iconic new landmark is this elegant 194m-long bridge over the Manawatu River – a critical link in a 9km network of cycling and walking trails (of the same name) that now connects Massey University with the city centre. Along the way there's a dairy farm, historic Māori (fortress) sites, a tree canopy boardwalk and info plaques on local Ranghitāne lore, with the broad river slowly sliding by. Hire a bike or lace up your boots and go exploring.
