Wairarapa is a region of big skies, wide valleys and small towns full of character. With three major forest parks and a wild stretch of coast it offers endless possibilities for outdoor adventures or just getting away from it all.
It is also one of New Zealand’s top food and wine destinations offering some of the country’s premium wines and everything from country cooking to haute cuisine in the many cafes and restaurants. The Wairarapa is a true escape – all within an hour’s drive of Wellington.
