The Wairarapa is located in the south east corner of the lower North Island. Just over an hour from Wellington and the Manawatu, the Wairarapa is easily accessible by road, rail and air, and is at the heart of the classic New Zealand wine trail.
Essentially rural with off-the-beaten-track charm, Wairarapa offers a diverse experience for lovers of great wine, gourmet food, native wildlife and natural beauty.
Wairarapa's proximity (only an hour and a half by train or car or 30 minutes by chartered aircraft) to Wellington is a huge advantage for visitors to the show enabling them to enjoy the many advantages of one of New Zealand's most exciting cities, while still being close enough to easily commute to the show on a daily basis.
