Tora Coastal Walk

Situated in the Southern Wairarapa, a short drive from Martinborough Wine Village, is The Tora Coastal Walk – an exhilarating three-day walk that’s second to none.

Family owned and operated, you’ll experience spectacular scenery, gourmet food, and warm rural hospitality. It’s one of the longest standing private walks in New Zealand, and widely regarded as the best.

Open 1st October to 30th April.

Martinborough Brewery

Martinborough Brewery produces premium hand-crafted beer made by two friends. Hayden Frew and Stephen Fox met at Otago University, but their taste in beer has moved a world away from pints at the pub. Today, their focus is quality and flavour. Each small batch is a labour of love - even the capping and labelling is hands-on.

Try the Hop Elixir, Black Nectar stout or Foxy Red ale - they taste just as good as they sound.
