Wellington and the Wairarapa Sights



Masterton Review

This is Wairarapa's major population center, and like Martinborough to the south, it's in a developing wine region. There's not much to do in the town, but it's a handy gateway for hiking in the nearby parks and on the coast. Popular annual events include the Hot Air Balloon Festival in the first few days of April and the Golden Shears sheep-shearing competition, usually held the first weekend in March.
