I always seem to need to ask iSite staff awkward questions, mainly because I am usually writing a travel article and want to find something different to do or photograph. The staff here were super-helpful and came up with plenty of useful ideas.

Really very helpful tourist info spot and cheery guide corrected us on things that the guide book had wrong. Also had good knowledge on local conditions affecting walks etc. Impressive surroundings and full cafe next door. Plus smart and clean toilets.

We were looking for local and regional maps and they had a comprehensive selection in their shop so well worth a visit. There was also a lot of leaflets and information available to take away and of course the staff present who were most helpful.

It's an interesting neighborhood. i-SITE points everything out from an attractive, well-located building. It's worth visiting just to appreciate their 3-d model of the river valley and its surroundings.

We got excellent guidance on what to do, including checking whether jet-boat tours were running, and which would be best for us.

Always a great place to take visitors to Whanganui - as a resident I pop in once a month to check the upcoming events and the Sargent Art Gallery display upstairs.
