The Rangitikei District is
located in the Central North Island of New Zealand, a previously overlooked visitor
destination. The Rangitikei River flows through the district from North to South,
providing many opportunities for both adventure and relaxation. Rangitikei is
a part of New Zealand's "River Region", also including Manawatu, Horowhenua, Tararua,
Wanganui and Ruapehu.
