Beautiful

Looking good Wairarapa!

It’s great to win an award and in 2017 Wairarapa scooped not one, but two, awards. We call that a WIN - WIN and we say head  'this way for beautiful'.

Greytown won Most Beautiful Small Town (population under 5000) and Masterton took out the top prize for Most Beautiful City (population over 20,000) in the 2017 Keep New Zealand Beautiful awards.

These awards recognise and celebrate positive actions taken by communities to protect and enhance their environments. So, while here in the Wairarapa we’re surrounded by natural beauty – rolling country-side, rivers and the towering Tararuas -  the judges noted that the most beautiful thing in these towns were the wonderful communities and the work they’ve done. Locals in these two towns have really engaged with environmental, heritage conservation and beautification projects, creating great communities.

We love that. As locals we know the positive people and activity that’s going on all across the region.  Here are just some things we find deeply attractive and hope you will too:

Come and see - come and stay - we'd love to see you.  Here are more ideas for your visit
