Girls' Great Escape
There's always time for a well-deserved break with your mates and the Wairarapa is the perfect place for it.
Take your time exploring the shops of Greytown with a stop at 1860 Restaurant for lunch. Get chocolate stilettos, yes stilettos, at Schoc Chocolates and find the perfect gift at Blackwell and Sons. In the afternoon head to Hall Concept Store and uncover other hidden shopping gems before a styling session at Designer Clothing Gallery.
Take your time the next morning before breakfast at The Offering. Now the rest of the day is yours in a little slice of country heaven just an hour away from Wellington.
