Wairarapa

Wairarapa is about one and half hours drive north from the capital city of Wellington. The region is bordered by the rugged Tararua Mountains to the west and the wild Pacific Ocean to the east.

Known for its hot, languid summers, the Wairarapa provides a relaxing, refined country break away from the pressures of urban life.

In and around Martinborough wine village, famed for its award-winning Pinot Noir, you’ll discover a host of welcoming vineyards. Continue the trail through Gladstone and Masterton.
