The Wairarapa is a region of spectacular coastlines, big skies, wide valleys and small towns, all full of character and only an hour's drive or train ride from Wellington. Close to both the Manawatu and Hawke's Bay too - check out the location here.
As well as vintage aircraft the Wairarapa has other ‘birds' including the very rare white kiwi Manukura at Pukaha Mount Bruce. Further north is Tui Brewery, a must-do experience, while a walk or cycle around Martinborough wine village gives you a chance to try top pinot noir.
