Establishment
“Built in the mid 1930s, to provide road access to the lower and middle valley farms known as the Mangapurua Valley Soldiers Settlement, the Bridge to Nowhere stands as a poignant memorial to the abandoned hopes and dreams of the returning World War I servicemen who braved this remote area. Attempting to transform virgin native forest into farmland, these pioneer settlers eventually bent to the will of the land, abandoning titles due to the area's difficult access for trading and the onset of the Great Depression. You can take a day tour on a jetboat to the Mangapurua Landing on the Whanganui River, followed by a 40 minute lovely, flat walk on a well maintained path through native forest ”
