Marton is a rural town in the lower North Island of New Zealand about half way between Palmerston North and Wanganui. We are about 2 hours away from Wellington and 1.5 hours from Lake Taupo.
Situated at the southern end of Rangitikei District, Marton is home to the main offices of the district council which also has offices in some of the surrounding towns. About 4,700 people live in the Marton's urban area however, because of the surrounding rural properties, the number of people who call the town home is considerably higher. Schools, sports clubs and community organisations abound and the main street, Broadway, is a great place to shop.
This site is intended to help you get in touch with businesses and groups in town. It is run on a voluntary basis by members of the Marton community who want to make life a bit easier for both locals and visitors.
