The Whanganui River in New Zealand is one of the nation’s most popular tourist destinations. It’s the third longest river in New Zealand, and is the most important river for the Māori tribe of the region. It’s also one of the most polluted rivers in the world. As a result, the river is considered one of the most dangerous rivers in New Zealand because of all the pollution that comes with it. The river was named by the first European explorers, in honor of the Dutch West India Company, which chartered it to trade between Tahiti and New Zealand in 1690. While the river’s name has been changed many times, it is still commonly known as the Whanganui.
The Whanganui River
The river runs through the Whanganui District, an area that is home to two international airports, numerous hotels and resorts, and a number of different businesses. Because the river originates from Tahiti, it’s also one of the most diverse regions of the country, which allows visitors from all over the world to visit the region. In the early part of this century, New Zealand was under a severe drought that was caused by the El Nino weather phenomenon. The drought affected the river, which had previously been carrying a high amount of pollutants because of the large amounts of fish that were caught in the river during the day.
When the river’s pollution levels increased dramatically, the Māori tribe began complaining about the smell of rotten eggs, a stench that was often described as like a rotting corpse. This problem soon spread throughout the river, causing tourists to abandon their trip, and eventually the whole region. While the area was not entirely without tourists, the tourists quickly became bored with the area, and the tourism industry in Whanganui fell apart. Due to this, the river was taken off of the list of the nation’s top tourist spots, but instead placed in the bottom of the list because of the pollution that was being caused by the polluted water.
