If you are animal lovers then our menagerie of animals will delight you, if not then be assured that they are kept securely in their own paddocks! Lynn and Peter Richardson
Harrison Retreat is a short 12 minute drive from vibrant and historic Whanganui. The town has a wide range of excellent eating options and a number of points of interest that are well worth visiting including the Regional museum, Sarjeant Art Gallery, Durie Hill Elevator and Tower, Waimarie steam paddle boat, Victoria Lake and gardens, numerous heritage buildings and of course the Whanganui River. Closer to home are Paloma Gardens - this garden of national significance is only 5 minutes by car and is highly recommended. We are 5 minutes from SH3 and New Plymouth, Mt Taranaki, Mt Ruapehu and Wellington are all within an easy 2.5 hour drive,
