DOWN AT THE MOUTH

A cold mid-winter day, and another walk towards the mouth of the mighty Whanganui River.  Once a busy port with international callers, now just a sleepy backwater – although there are plans afoot to revive the port for inter-Island ferries.  Remains of past glories are marked by rotting piers beloved by ducks and other birds.

  1. I’m a huge fan of old timber too… and old rusting steel lol !!! They are thinking of bringing the InterIslander to Whanganui ??? Wow, I am massively behind on that news / idea. Cool idea though, but not sure what Wellingtonians would think about it. Big loss of trade / tourism.
