Welcome
To Day Trips for the Uninspired:
Things to see and do in and around Palmerston North, Manawatu, Tararua, Wairarapa, Hawke's Bay & Wellington Regions of New Zealand
My name is Elayne, I am a photographer, adventurer and dog trainer. Once a week my friend Gina & I, don on our tourist hats and seek out new places to visit.  Its not been easy but someone has to do it:-)

Gina & I both live in Woodville a small town in the Tararua District, which is part of the Manawatu-Wanganui Region.

After many hours of searching & talking to people from near and far.  People, including locals, often say to me “oh there’s nothing really to see or do,  around the Manawatu or Palmerston North“

If you are a local or someone visiting the area on holiday, finding places to visit can be frustrating and tedious, as I have personally found out.

So I decided to start a blog titled: "Day Trips for the Uninspired"  There are a few places listed here on this site but if you want to see more click on my blog link above.

Only places I have personally visited, will be listed on my blog. Every places I visit will have its own page.

I will also be including day trips to other regions on the blog as well.

There will be links to websites, photos and of course my personal views. I will also included information as to whether the location is wheelchair friendly.

These trips, are what I consider low cost, in most cases, they will only cost you time and petrol as food and drink can be taken with you, as well as, your sense of adventure.
