Whanganui's second library, The Alexander Library was opened on 28 June 1933, funded in most part by the generous gift of Miss E Alexander in memory of her late father Mr James Alexander.

The Durie Hill Elevator is located opposite the the Whanganui City Bridge on Anzac Parade and is a 5 minute walk from the Whanganui City. It was built to provide public transport to some say the first modern New Zealand suburb. It is as inovative as it is today as it was when it first open in 1919. This suburb was planned by the architect Samuel Hurst Seager and has provided the local community a wonderful service and a place where you can truely take in some stunning views of Whanganui…
