Whanganui Port is a vital link in New Zealand’s supply chain, providing berthing facilities for coastal freight vessels and commercial boats, along with access to world class distribution and logistics companies.
The assets of the port were transferred to the Whanganui Port on 21 November 2022, please visit the Whanganui Port website to find out more.
Whanganui Port’s No 1 Wharf is the home to Coastal Bulk Shipping’s M.V. Anatoki, and is the primary commercial wharf capable of taking heavy vehicles. The M.V. Anatoki carries bulk cargoes such as grain, fertiliser and gravel around New Zealand.
Currently the No 2 Wharf is used for small boat berths, while the No 3 Wharf is suited to non-commercial activities. Both Wharfs 2 and 3 are undergoing significant remedial work as part of Te Pūwaha: the Whanganui Port revitalisation project.
Three warehouse buildings at the port are also available, with storage capacity of up to 4,386 square metres.
The Wharf Street boat ramp and trailer park is located next to the port, where on a good day more than 150 recreational boats can launch in pursuit of one of the best selections of table fish found in New Zealand.
