The Country Road Scenic Routes & Experiences
The Country Road is a collection of scenic driving routes throughout Manawatu, offering a glimpse into true New Zealand back country through valleys, gorges and steep hill country farm land.
Skip the main highways to avoid the traffic and explore by car, motorhome, or bike. The three routes are Peep-O-Day Route, Stormy Point Route and
Manawatu Scenic Route.
Meander through our country lanes and villages and make your way to Ashhurst, Palmerston North, Feilding and more. There really is no better way to experience the Manawatu.
The Country Road is rich in culture and experience.
For a real outdoors experience, spend a day tramping through the majestic Ruahine Ranges, where you’ll discover clear rivers, spectacular waterfalls and serene native bush all topped off with incredible views.
Totara trees hundreds of years old, tower over the native bush, and native birds are abundant.
