Be inspired in theatres and galleries, explore the city’s outdoor playground by bike, foot or train, and fill your bags with new wares and tasty treats from boutiques and markets.
Only an hour away from Wellington by car or train, Wairarapa is one of New Zealand’s top wine regions. A day visit or an overnight stay is the perfect complement to your stay in the capital. The Wairarapa is home to both Martinborough wine village where over 20 vineyards renowned for award-winning pinot noir surround the square, and Greytown, a sophisticated colonial shopping and eating village.
With two Lions Tour matches spanning an eventful week in Wellington, there’ll be just as much action off the field, when the waterfront is transformed into the ultimate fan zone. Keep an eye out for light projections in celebration of Matariki (the Maori New Year), a live site on the waterfront and a fan trail to make your journey to the Stadium memorable.
