Wow! Wonders of the Wairarapa

Twilight Travel & Tours. Wairarapa Coach Tour.

27th September - 2nd October 2020

The Wairarapa is a region of spectacular coastlines, wide valleys and small towns. It's known for its vineyards, gourmet food, walking and cycling trails - and a vibrant arts scene. All about an hour's drive or train ride from Wellington, the Wairarapa was first settled by Maori in the 1300s. With the arrival European settlers in the 1800s, the Wairarapa became a farming area known for its meat and butter. Farming is still important, but so is forestry, fishing and horticulture. Today the Wairarapa is popular with holidaymakers - but also with young families who are moving here to enjoy a slower pace of life and a strong sense of community. When you visit, you're sure of a warm welcome.

The itinerary includes a tour of Zealong Tea Estate in Gordonton, a cruise on Lake Taupo, Cobblestones Museum, historic Brancepeth Homestead, a boutique olive grove, winery and Stonehenge - a working replica of the 4000 year old monument on the Salisbury Plains of England.
