Surrounded by the thriving vineyards, orchards and olive groves of the Wairarapa Valley, historic Martinborough makes a perfect base to taste the region’s many attractions – including its award-winning pinot noir. Cosmopolitan Wellington is just a 75-minute drive away and many residents make a weekend trip to enjoy the town’s delightful cafés and wineries. Many of the vineyards are just an easy walk from the town centre. You can pick up a wine trail map from the i-SITE and go exploring on foot, take a guided cycle tour and enjoy the country scenery as you pedal or go touring by horse and carriage or London cab.
The annual Toast Martinborough Festival in November is a lively day out for visitors, with fine wine, gourmet treats and live music. The surrounding countryside offers plenty of outdoor activities. You can go golfing and clay pigeon shooting, visit a local olive grove for a tasting, or join a quad bike adventure and explore the hill country farmland.
Martinborough has a number of campgrounds and holiday parks
catering to the needs of travellers enjoying a New Zealand camping holiday. Whether you're looking for a campsite to pitch your tent; a cabin; or a caravan park for your campervan / RV you'll find the widest choice here.
