Must-Do Destination Wairarapa & beyond

The name Wairarapa, meaning “glistening waters” in Te Reo Maori traditionally is based on an early Maori explorer, named Haunui, who saw the rivers and lake from the mountains to the west.

Traveling from Wellington , you drive over the winding, scenic Remutaka Hill road. Halfway down there’s a point where you have a magnificent view over the Wairarapa where bush-clad ranges to the west across flat plains to a rugged coast on the east. Discover the Must-Do Destination Wairarapa.

The Wairarapa definition

A rural area with an off-the-beaten-track charm, Wairarapa, New Zealand, offers travelers a wide range of experiences as well as lots of hidden gems waiting for you to be explored.

As a keen walker, head up to the Waiohine Gorge with its forest walk and swing bridge in the Tararuas. Alternatively you could  also walk/tramp one of the the Mount Holdsworth tracks. Head out with us to Castlepoint on the coast and you’ll pass through the country village of Tinui – town of NZ’s first ANZAC service.

Furthermore if you are wine and food lovers, take one of our amazing wine tours to show you the great wine areas with plenty of boutique and rustic Kiwi owned wineries and also indulge in the delicious local fresh produce and meats. If you like seafood you will love the Wairarapa.

The towns have their own individual character and charm. Martinborough is the centre of the local wine industry – take a tour of the vineyards with us . While Greytown has an architectural charm and is a favourite weekend getaway for Wellingtonians. Masterton, the home of the “Golden Shears” is a foodies heaven with multiple attractions. For example explore family friendly Queen Elisabeth Park. Secondly walk around Henley Lake and finally stroll all recreational walks in our plentiful reserves. Rest at one of our various cafes where you experience what coffee culture means.
