Ocean Beach

Ocean Beach is across Lake Onoke from Lake Ferry but can be accessed down Western Lake Road from Featherston in about 40 minutes and from Martinborough in about 50 minutes. This part of the coast is close to one of the world’s top ranked lodges at Wharekauhau Country Estate.

Lake Wairarapa & Wairarapa Moana

Lake Wairarapa provides some stunning scenery on your drive or cycle on Western Lake Road to Ocean beach and on to Wharekauhau Luxury Lodge. Close to Featherston, Martinborough and Palliser Bay the Lake is also on famous film director James Cameron's back door step. Biking Western Lake road or a bike from Cross Creek to Featherston will also take you close to Lake Wairarapa which drains into Lake Onoke and Wairarapa Moana.

Wairarapa Racing Club

The Wairarapa Racing Club was officially formed in 1864, and shifted to its location at Tauherenikau, just north of Featherston in 1874. The site provides one of the most picturesque environments for a horse racing club in New Zealand. The Wairarapa horse racing calendar features a series of fun family picnic style horse races.
