Remutaka (Rimutaka) Cycle Trail

The Remutaka (Rimutaka) Cycle Trail connects Wellington with Wairarapa, winding through a variety of stunning landscapes: a river valley, rolling foothills, bush-clad ranges, old railway tunnels, lake-sides, farm land and a rugged coastline. Choose to ride parts of the trail in one day or ride the whole trail over several days.

Featherston Ferret

The Featherston Ferret is the younger sibling of Cuba Street, Wellington's Ferret.

Featherston Ferret has mainly second-hand books ranging from A for Art to Z for (Olde and New) Zealand literature and history, with special interest paid to younger Aotearoa-based stories.
