The Wanganui graticule includes the Tongariro National Park, which is the North Islands outdoor playground! The landscape is dominated by the three volcanoes - Mt Ruapehu, Mt Ngaruhoe and Mt Tongariro, and the surrounding tussock land. There are many outdoor activities to be had in the area including tramping, skiing, mountain biking, kayaking and kite-flying to name a few. There are also many fine multiday tramps around the Central Plateau volcanoes and the Kaimanawa Ranges to the east. The area is also famous for Waiouru Military Camp, which denys public access to a vast quantity of the harsh tussock land. The National Army Museum  is worth a look if your happen to be in the region.
