The Bridge to Nowhere
40 kilometres from the farm in Whanganui National Park lies the iconic Bridge to Nowhere. Sitting over the Mangapurua Gorge the concrete bridge was completed in 1936 to enhance access to one of the most remote valleys of the Upper Whanganui River. Seven years later however it become redundant as the settlers, discharged servicemen from the First World War, abandoned the area. They had been valiantly trying to make a living from the inhospitable land for 24 years. Now a popular tourist attraction you can walk, mountain bike or jet boat to the Bridge from Whakahoro.
