Manawatu Gorge

The Manawatu River, originating in the Ruahine Range and flows through the Manawatu Gorge for 160 km and across the plain to Foxton Beach where it enters the Tasman Sea.
The Manawatu Gorge is the major thoroughfare from the west into Hawke's Bay through the Tararua and Ruahine ranges.
The first track was made in the late 1860s through the gorge, and ten years later a road was built.
The railway line, on the northern bank of the steep gorge, was built in the beginning of the 1890s.
