The Manawatu is renowned for its power generation using clean green New Zealand wind. The hills surrounding Palmerston North are dotted with wind turbines to the north and south of the Manawatu Gorge. These iconic structures stand tall atop the hillside, making a striking statement on the landscape due to their size and the number of turbines visible along the eastern skyline.
So in recognition of the Manawatu landscape, the 2019 AHCCNZ National Rally in Palmerston North is aptly named the “Windmill Rally”
