Masterton is the largest town in the Wairarapa region and offers a diversity of environment to anyone visiting our Masterton accommodation
. With the rugged Taurarua Ranges and Wairarapa Valley to the West and wild coastline to explore in the East and the working farms that lie to the North and South of the urban centre, Masterton is a proverbial smorgasbord of landscape and scenery.
With its farming background, Masterton is home to the annual Golden Shear sheep shearing competition, worth a look if you are staying in our Masterton accommodation while the event is held in March.
Head to the coast from your Masterton hotel
and discover the breathtaking scenery of Castlepoint and Castle Rock, a natural formation named by Captain James Cook as he passed by it at sea. Home to an excellent surf beach, the last manned lighthouse built in New Zealand and an array of wildlife, Castlepoint is one of the most spectacular sites on the rambling Wairarapa coastline.
Masterton offers the classic New Zealand adventure activities like jet boating, hot air ballooning, fishing, surfing, and of course some of its more relaxed exploits of walking trails, gardens, animal parks or perhaps visiting the vineyards that the Wairarapa region is home to; all are within easy reach of our accommodation in Masterton
