Stay in a beautifully restored New Zealand Railway Signal Box. This building has plenty of character and spectacular elevated views of the Whanganui River. Relocated in the late 1990's to its current position, the Signal Box is set on 5 acres of land with the adjacent family home, chicken run, farmland and river views.

We are situated on Papaiti Road, on the true righthand side of the Whanganui River, approximately 8km up the river from the centre of the city.

The space
Please let us know if you require one king or two single beds so that we can prepare your room. This space strictly sleeps, two individuals.

If you are paddling down the Whanganui River in an open canoe, completing the Mountain to Sea Cycle Trail or walking the length of New Zealand's Te Araroa Trail, make The Signal Box your first stop for accommodation when arriving in Whanganui.

We have riverside access for your canoes, racks for your bikes and plenty of off road parking.
