One of the more unusual ways of crossing the Whanganui River was undertaken by the aerialist Senor Vertelli. In October 1867 he walked the 300 metres across the river on a tight-rope. On his return crossing, he pushed a wheelbarrow. Vertelli did offer to push a volunteer from the audience in the wheelbarrow, but no one took him up on his offer.
