Foxton Beach - Accomodation.

Quiet, sunny and neat bach. Water just 10m away . Perfect for a comfy couples get-away, or a happy family holiday with fantastic views of the water (Manawatu Estuary), bird life, sunset and the Tararua Ranges.

Bird watchers. Estuary birds feed and nest just 20metres away.

This idyllic spot helps your relax as soon as you set foot on the typical 'kiwi bach' section. Come and enjoy.

Fishing, boating, walk ways, playgrounds and restaurants all close by.
Only 30mins from Palmerston North and Ohakea - so great as an after work getaway and short term accomodation.

   Manawatu Bird Sanctuary.    

  The estuary has one of the most diverse ranges of birds to be seen at any one place in New Zealand, a total of 93 species have been identified at the estuary. It is a significant area of salt marsh and mudflat and a prized feeding ground for many birds including the migratory Eastern bar-tailed Godwit, which flies all the way from Siberia to New Zealand to escape the harsh northern winter.

The estuary is also a permanent home to 13 species of birds, six species of fish and four plants species, all of which are threatened. It regularly supports about one percent of the world population of wrybills.

In 2005 the Manawatu Estuary Trust were successful with their application to obtain Ramsar status for the Manawatu Estuary. This is given to wetlands of international significance under the RAMSAR convention, an inter-government treaty on the conservation of wetlands.

People say the nicest things… 


loved it. this place is the genuine article - kiwi bach with the most fantastic view - 5 metres away from a bird santuary with godwits wandering around - well set up bach with everything you need - comfy quality furniture etc - great couple of days away from earthquake central - vista out that window can only be described as whistling good
