Getting to Martinborough

Getting to Martinborough is easy - and the scenery's gorgeous. State Highway 2 passes just north of town, or you can catch the train from Wellington.

A trip to Martinborough is a great day trip from Wellington

This Wellington to Martinborough driving map and another Palmerston North to Martinborough map will keep you on the right road.

Coming by train

Jump on the Wairarapa train in Wellington, hop off in Featherston and board the Featherston to Martinborough bus which meets trains (not on Sundays though).

On Sundays and public holidays the Green Jersey Explorer Bus meets the 10.52 train arriving into Featherston from Wellington - it will then transfer you over to Martinborough.  In the afternoon the Green Jersey Explorer Bus will leave Martinborough at 4.55pm to connect with the 5.26pm train departing from Featherston to return to Wellington.  Cost for the bus is $10 per person.

Another option on Sundays or public holidays is to book a shuttle  with Rimutaka Shuttles and Martinborough Shuttles.

Here's a Wellington-Wairarapa train timetable.
