Wairarapa is a region of spectacular coastlines, big skies, wide valleys and small towns - only an hour's drive or train ride from Wellington. The place Maori called “Land of Glistening Waters” Wairarapa is one of the country’s top food and wine destinations and lies at the heart of the Classic New Zealand Wine Trail. With its boutique wineries, olive groves, orchards and surrounding landscape in sheep, beef and dairy farms it’s no wonder it’s the home to leading artisan food producers. The Tararua Forest Park, Rimutaka Forest Park and Haurangi Forest Park combined with the wild stretch of coastline from Palliser Bay to Castlepoint offers endless outdoor adventures.
