Whanganui River view from Aramoana

This is the Whanganui River seen from Aramoana, the hilltop summit 14 kilometres from Whanganui city where the river road first offers an extended view of the river. Sometimes called Gentle Annie, it may also have been the place where a downstream traveller first saw the sea – hence the name Aramoana (pathway to the sea).
