Overview

Get away from the urban bustle of Wellington and explore the foodie delights, boutique shopping and secret gardens of Greytown on this Greytown, Wairarapa: Gardens Shopping & Food Private Day Tour in New Zealand. A scenic journey an hour north of Wellington takes you to the relaxed rural atmosphere and elegant style of Greytown otherwise famous for its postcard-worthy Victorian architecture.

To get there, we cross the Rimutaka mountain range, but not without a coffee stop in Featherston where we take a look inside a few shops. We then drive north to The Olive Press for their locally grown olives and various olive products including oils and body products available for purchase.

If you are into country gardens, Kahikatea Gardens will delight. Gaze around this private paradise with hosts Neil and Greg showing you the flowering shrubs and trees, dotted here and there with art, old farm machinery and friendly animals that are always hungry!

Lunch is at one of the popular local restaurants. We then continue on to Greytown to browse its quaint shops and the Cobblestones Museum to find out more about the history of the area. We can also take a quick look at Schoc Chocolate before leaving town.

On our way back to Wellington, we take a break at Fernside for a refreshing stroll in its impressive gardens. It was once a US Ambassadorial residence, and was featured in Peter Jackson’s film trilogy, The Lord of the Rings.
