Presently we are organising the next AGM in Wanganui and extend a warm welcome for Austineers to attend.
Planning is well underway for you to enjoy several sites around Whanganui. The Waimaire Paddle Steamer trip goes up the river and is a great nostalgic trip. It is $40 per person and leaves the wharf at 11am returning at 1pm.
We will endeavour to arrange the AGM to accommodate those going on this trip. We can possibly arrange to have lunch saved for those who wish to participate on the steamer trip.
There are trips arranged for the Saturday and Sunday mornings to show you around places of interest.
We will be running raffles to off set expenses.
The BBQ is a cost of $10 per person and we have undertaken to subsidise this to $5.
Thanks for your support and hope we see plenty of Austins and people at the AGM. For further information please contact Elaine.

Please advise if arriving by air into Palmerston North so that we can co-ordinate travel to Whanganui. Once we know the numbers intending to arrive we will arrange for the Girl's College van to pick up. In some instances there may be a wait. I would suggest if you can arrive mid Friday afternoon it would be most convenient for pick ups. There is a cost for the van from the Girls College of $10 per person each way.There are no Air New Zealand flights into Whanganui however there are flights direct from Auckland with Chathams Air.
Air New Zealand and Jetstar fly into Palmerston North.
