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. Masterton, the largest town in Wairarapa is home to Wairarapa's Art and History Museum and the centre of major annual events including the international Golden Shears competition and the international Hot Air Balloon Fiesta. Martinborough is a unique wine village with over 25 boutique vineyards, most within walking distance of the charming town square.
