    Default Can anyone tell me anything about Wairarapa?

    Hey dudes, can anyone help us on this? I'm sure I've heard Natty and maybe Stevey comment on how beautiful the Wairarapa is but can anyone actually tell me anything about it? It's over the mountains from Welli isn't it - on the bottom right hand side of the North Island? Whats travelling like to get back to Welli for example? What's the lifestyle like there? Is it a touristy place - do people go there for weekend breaks etc? Property seems cheap - is this just coz it's quiet or coz it's a dive?

    Any help or comments please :)

    Dawn! We have our very own Wairarapa rep right here on this forum (when he's around). ?

    From here uttered by Nattydread:

    Masterton looks nice and cheap..

    There haven't been many updates on the Wairarapa region on this site. Mainly because I don't think there are any forumites living there..
    I will happily volunteer my services as the movetonz.org rep for the wairarapa..

    Well, I think Natty's under the impression it is, so we'll have to run with that unless we find out otherwise. ? ;D Wherever it is, he's pretty taken with it anyway.

    Wairarapa region is about 1.5 hours to two hours drive from Welly I think. I have never been there yet but will do so next week tuesday. It is a nice region for vineyards as I have seen and some coast areas like Castle Point, not entirely sure about job prospects but I am sure it depends what profession you are in too. I am in IT so none for me there I guess. It will be a nice place for me to relax and recharge.

    Not much help....sorry
