One of New Zealand's oldest European settler towns, it grew up around and incorporates much earlier Māori iwi settlements of Ngāti Hāua, Ngāti Hauiti, and Te Āti Haunui-a-Pāpārangi.

The town is located on fertile sandy soils where the magnificent Whanganui River emerges from the national park, also named Whanganui, and enters the Tasman Sea. Originally founded as Petre for the European settlers of the 1840's, it changed name to Wanganui, and more recently is correctly recognised as Whanganui. In the 1900's it quickly grew to become an important transport link between the top and bottom of New Zealand's North Island, using the river and beaches as major highways north.


Since the 1930's the decline in industry and some farming operations has resulted in the towns population staying level around 30-40 thousand. More recently since the 2010's the town is again growing in population, reaching around 50k in 2017. Newer economies and a global smart21 status has seen investment in internet connectivity, with all commercial and most residential properties having access to fibre broadband connections. Whanganui offers historical, and artistic links to New Zealand cultures, together with affordable housing and is establishing itself as a great place to live and run digital businesses from in the 21st century economy.
