Wellington and the Wairarapa Sights



Castlepoint Review

An hour's drive east of Masterton along Te Ore-ore Road (which turns into the Masterton–Castlepoint road), Castlepoint is perhaps the most spectacular site on the entire Wairarapa coast. Castle Rock rises a sheer 500 feet out of the sea; below, in Deliverance Cove, seals sometimes play. There's a fantastic walk to the peninsula lighthouse, and surfers flock to the beach break at Deliverance Cove.
