Raetihi is an old milling town with a step back in time feeling. New Zealand the way it was.Explore the old town with historic buildings, chat with the lovely country people who can tell you some history. View from the road the fabulous Ratana Church high on a hill overlooking the town. See the town many movies have been made in and nearby Horipito where the movie Smash Palace was made. Horipito Motors is a fascinating place to visit.

The Waimarino golf course is nearby and visitors are always welcome.

There is Horse riding at Rangatau and the Raetihi Museum opens Sundays.

You can hire a bike and ride the Old Coach Road to Horipito,The Bridge To Nowhere, 42nd Traverse,Fishers Track or many other rides or do one of the many mountain walks.

Take a picnic or bbq food to Ruatiti domain and if you're lucky see the rare Whio.

Its a 30 minute trip to the Whanganui river at Pipiriki where you can take an exhilarating jet boat from there to The Bridge To Nowhere.

You can step back in time and travel the Whanganui River Road to Whanganui. on the way call in to Jerusalem and see where James K Baxter lived and the Convent built by Sister Suzanne Aubert.
