About Wairarapa, New Zealand

Although often thought of just as a pleasant farming region, there is much more to the Wairarapa than many imagine.

From the orchards and antique shops of southern Wairarapa head out to the wild & rugged coast where excellent crayfish abound.

In and around the town of Martinborough you will find some superb vineyards and wineries. The region is especially noted for its fine Pinot Noir.

In the northern Wairarapa a visit to the internationally acclaimed Mt. Bruce National Wildlife Centre is sure to fascinate, as is the nearby Mt. Bruce Pioneer Museum.

The Tararua Forest Park provides numerous opportunities for tramping trips and day walks. There are a number of privately owned and operated walking routes and experiences to be had too.

Tararua Walks


2 hours north of Wellington

The days are spent wandering through native bush or over farmland, while the nights hold something special. There`s a lodge overlooking amazing wetlands, a cabin set deep in the bush or some historical huts beside a beautiful river with the added attraction of a hot spa surrounded by bush in which you can enjoy your wine or simply gaze at the stars.
