The Wairarapa is the south-eastern region of New Zealand’s North Island. It has a long history and strength in agriculture, horticulture, forestry and associated services.
“Wairarapa” is a Maori name that means “glistening waters”. The Wairarapa has many rivers, lakes and it is surrounded by the sea to the east and south, and the Tararua ranges to the west – all of which provide a haven for an abundance of wildlife.
The Wairarapa is a popular destination for tourists as it boasts a diverse range of attractions and activities from breathtaking mountains, forests, rivers and lakes to beautiful beaches, vineyards, golf courses and parks. With a wide range of accommodation and amenities, Wairarapa hospitality is second to none.
The Wairarapa is growing as a lifestyle choice for people to settle. With more and more people coming to the Wairarapa – either permanently or as visitors – the region is growing and investing in the region makes sense for locals and non-Wairarapa residents alike.
