Marae in Woodville

Woodville is situated halfway between Napier and Wellington and therefore is an ideal travellers stop, becoming well known for antiques and crafts.

It is known as The Junction as it is the gateway to three provinces - Hawkes Bay, Wairarapa/Wellington and Manawatu.

Woodville is also the gateway to the Manawatu Gorge, which runs between the Tararua and Ruahine Ranges and is unique in having between these ranges, a State Highway, the Manawatu River and a Railway.

High on the Tararua ranges is Central Power's Tararua Wind Farm, which will be the largest in the southern hemisphere. Near the Wind Farm lies Ballance where there are Clydesdale Wagon Rides, horse trekking, various other activities and attractions and beautiful bush walks as well as the Manawatu River where various activities are held.

The area is well known for its excellent fishing, hunting and tramping - an abundance of outdoor activities.

Woodville is also quite unique as it has its own community radio station - 'Radio Woodville - The Voice of the Tararua'

The town's Mainstreet committee is recognising the work of the famous artist - Gottrfried Lindauer - who lived and worked in Woodville, by building a replica studio in the main street.
