the undiscovered secret, an unexplored district, spoilt for its beauty and activities
The beauty that the Rangitikei
has to offer, is really is as good as it gets - from the unsurpassed Rangitikei river, with some of the best white water rafting and trout fishing in New Zealand, through to the awesome tourist trails for scenic driving. Once you divert off State Highway 1, you will enter into another world.
The Rangitikei boasts numerous outstanding golf courses. The Rangatira Golf Course is just one of many. Described by Sky TV Golf Show as "a gem of a country course", Rangatira is nestled on the banks of the Rangitikei river and plays over three level terraces. The lower one, which has a cable car, get you up to the club house. Testament to the Rangitikei river and the golf courses around the district are the overseas guests that stay in Fermanagh Cottage
for those reason alone.
Other activities in the Rangitikei include fabulous Garden Tours
is close to surf and swimming beaches, jet boating, horse trekking, and of course the "Mokai Gravity Canyon", with its 180-metre high and 160 kph flying fox, an 80-metre high bungy jump and a water-powered chair lift that takes you from the shore of the Rangitikei river 80 metres above, to the jumping platform and café.
Driving the scenic roads around the Rangitikei, you will notice the stunning architecture of some of the residences. Some of these grand homes can be viewed by taking advantage of a Historical Architecture Tour
