Wellington, Wairarapa & Kapiti Island
November 2020

Join us on an exploration of some of the nooks and crannies of the Wellington and Wairarapa regions. In Wellington we bypass some of the more common tourist spots (although you can easily visit Te Papa and other popular destinations in a free afternoon or by staying on in Wellington pre or post tour), and instead see some  local favourites.

Stay in the delightful town of Martinborough. Delve into the history and mystery of astronomy at Stonehenge Aotearoa, and do some stargazing in the dark skies of the Wairarapa.

For native flora and fauna lovers, our visits to Otari-Wilton’s bush and Pukaha National Wildlife Centre at Mount Bruce will be a treat. The highlight, though, will be an overnight stay on Kapiti Island as we spend the evening on the hunt for the little spotted kiwi.
