Wairarapa

An hour’s scenic drive from New Zealand’s capital city Wellington, the Wairarapa region is located in the south-eastern corner of the country’s North Island. Wairarapa, named for its largest lake, means ‘glistening waters’; the name was reportedly given to the area by the early Maori explorer Huanui who glimpsed the lake and surrounding rivers from the ranges to the west. The region was settled by Maori beginning in the 14th century, and Europeans arrived in the 1840s. Wairarapa remained a peaceful farming region even during the tumultuous New Zealand Wars, and even people head there from the cities to enjoy a quieter pace of life.

Wairarapa is largely rural, a wide sprawl of open space stretching from the rugged, bush-clad Tararua Range to the east and south coasts. Masterton is the region’s main town; others include Carterton, Greytown, Martinborough and Featherston. Each town has a unique character: Carterton is regarded as an arts hub; Masterton plays host to the annual Golden Shear sheep-shearing contest; Greytown is known for its architectural charm and beautiful trees; Featherston is a mecca for railway and military buffs; and Martinborough is famous for its wineries.

The Wairarapa is a small wine region, with just 3% of New Zealand’s total land under vine and 1% of its total production. However, despite its size, Wairarapa wine country is home to some of the most iconic and sought after wineries including Te Kairanga and Craggy Range. There are 20 wineries around Martinborough, most of which can be reached on foot or by bicycle from the Martinborough’s village square. Each November, the Toast Martinborough festival celebrates the region’s wines and showcases Wairarapa’s boutique wine and food producers. The festival brings 10,000 people to the town, which has a permanent population of just 1300.

Perhaps unsurprisingly due to its rural character, Wairarapa’s economy is centred on agricultural industries. Forestry and sheep, beef and dairy farming are major land users. The move into viticulture in the 1980s brought diversity and prosperity to the sector. Tourism is a growth area today, with Wairarapa marketing itself as ‘New Zealand’s Capital Country,’ pitched at Wellington visitors seeking a country experience with city comforts. A number of regional festivals and fairs attract thousands to the area, and lifestyle blocks and weekend holiday homes are sought after by Wellingtonians seeking peace and quiet not far from the city.

Wairarapa is the birthplace of numerous notable New Zealanders, including comedians Jemaine Clement (Flight of the Conchords) and Raybon Kan, and champion golfer Sir Bob Charles. Wairarapa was also the site of a major political milestone, when in 1995 Georgina Beyer was elected mayor of Carterton, making her the world’s first transsexual mayor. She went on to become the Wairarapa’s Member of Parliament in 1999, making her the world’s first transsexual MP.

Another excellent review for Murdoch James Estate

In a South Wairarapa valley in the North Island of New Zealand, you’ll find the town of Martinborough - a picturesque village surrounded by premium boutique wineries including the renowned Murdoch James Estate. Hills lining the valley give shelter from the wind and rain as well as providing a stunning backdrop to the town. Cold winters, with snow on the ranges, and hot dry summers followed by long dry autumns provide ideal conditions for the cool climate grape varieties grown here. “Martinborough, world famous for its combination of highly suitable soil types and favourable climate, enables passionate winemakers to produce wines of finesse and character.” – Roger

Great feedback for Kapiti Hypnotherapy

“Initially, I was a sceptic! I believed the worst about hypnosis and most certainly did not believe hypnotherapy was any better! When I met Anne-Marie and spoke to her of my concerns, she corrected my long standing, misrepresented belief system and encouraged me to see her professionally. From our first appointment, I was at ease in Anne-Marie's care and I responded to hypnotherapy admirably! Soon I was practicing everything Anne-Marie taught me, in order to help myself. Before long, I was facing my world with a new found confidence. After only five hypnotherapy sessions, Anne-Marie had taught me coping mechanisms for highly stressful and challenging situations. All my anxieties are now under my control and my confidence has been restored. Recently, I went for a job interview, attended a recall and won the role. Thank you, Anne-Marie for teaching me the valuable skills I needed to manage my life. I really wanted to master my emotions, and you helped me to do that. Today, I am a convert!” -AW

Another excellent review for GT Environmental Services Ltd

"In building our house we used GT Environmental Services to supply and install all our draining and septic waste needs and also water pump supply. The service was excellent and it all went according to plan, including email photographic copies of drainage layout for future reference. Workmanship was efficient and to a high standard and on time. We have since used Graham and GT Environmental Services for drainage work and septic work at our coastal property and again nothing was a problem and innovative planning to suit coastal requirements was implemented with precision. We would not hesitate to recommend this very professional business to anyone requiring waste or septic expertise and services." - Jeanette
