 Horowhenua is a special part of New Zealand. Just over an hour from Wellington and half that time to Palmerston North, but the feel of another world. From the calm quiet of bush walks and gardens, history and culture to the exhilaration of rivers and the sea, the region offers something for everyone.

Stretching from just south of Himatangi in the north to just north of Otaki in the south, the region is bordered by the Tararua Ranges to the east and the Tasman Sea to the west. There are a number of small towns including Foxton, Shannon and Tokomaru, several growing beach communities, and the main centre of Levin situated on the junction at State Highways One and 57. The region has a population of over 30,000, many of whom choose to live here for the lifestyle alternative to urban living. The mild climate and rich soils make market gardening, horticulture and farming the mainstays of the economy.

Manufacturing, food processing, construction and service industries are also important contributors. The whole area is currently experiencing steady growth which is expected to continue over the next 10 years.
