Durie Hill Elevator Whanganui
#1 of 44 Sights & Landmarks in Manawatu-Wanganui Region
What a fantastic piece of history that's used daily by locals!!! Tunnel is amazing and the ride up the elevator and then the tower to see our amazing view of Wanganui is great.
The tower up top gives splendid views right over the town and if you can climb the even bigger tower behind the smaller one then you will be well rewarded with the views from up there.

Its a reasonably good track with a couple of DoC toilets along the way for those in need, be sure to stop along the way as there are some fantastic views of virgin native bush and the river below.
The walk up to the site was an easy 25 minute bush walk and our group made some stops on the way for snacks and photos.
