Bridge to Nowhere Tours

Drive yourself to Pipiriki via the Whanganui River Road. Hop on a jetboat and then walk a gentle 40 minute from the Mangapurua Landing to the bridge. This large concrete bridge is an icon within the Whanganui National Park and a major visitor destination. It was constructed in the mid-1930s to provide road access to farms known as the Mangapurua Valley Soldiers Settlement. By the time it was completed these areas of the Mangapurua Valley were deserted, the bridge rarely used and the construction of the road to the Whanganui River abandoned.
