Rangitikei Headwaters – Where is it?

The Headwaters of the Rangitikei River are situated in the central North Island, with the first small streams flowing from the Kaimanawa Ranges.

The Rangitikei is New Zealand’s third longest river.

The general shape of the catchment is much like a frying pan, with the body of the pan north of the town of Mangaweka, and the narrow handle running from Mangaweka to the Tasman Sea, off the coast of Bulls.
