Palmerston North is a city on New Zealand's North Island. In the centre, the New Zealand Rugby Museum displays sporting memorabilia, including vintage All Blacks uniforms. Next door is the Te Manawa art, science and history museum. Adjacent to the Manawatu River, Victoria Esplanade is a sprawling park with a duck pond and rose gardens. Just outside the city is Manawatu Gorge, with forested hills and native bushland.
