Wharekauhau Lodge Wairarapa, New Zealand


New Zealand’s rich and  fascinating history reflects a unique mix of Māori and European culture. The perfect place to lose yourself in amazing Māori historic sites and taonga (treasures) as well as beautiful colonial era buildings dotted throughout the country. Gawk  at the high peaks and glaciers in vast mountain ranges and explore the white and black sand beaches and desert-like plains, and unpopulated islands of this country.


Known as the land of glistening waters, water is abundant in this small rural area. With a rich past of hard work, Wairapapa lacks shopping malls and crowded streets as it is an iconic region of small family-run business dedicated to refining their chosen craft.
