Welcome to Trafalgar Square

Trafalgar Square was constructed in 1987 and officially opened on the 5th November 1989, by the then Mayor of Whanganui, Chas Poynter.

Trafalgar Square Shopping Centre is located in the heart of Whanganui within walking distance of Victoria Avenue and the Whanganui River. Whanganui is within a 3-hour drive from Wellington, Taupo and New Plymouth. A heritage theme is carried throughout the city with many historic wooden buildings, gas lights and flowering hanging baskets.
