Destination Wairarapa

Destination Wairarapa is the Regional Tourism Organisation (RTO) for the Wairarapa. Our role is to attract more visitors, who stay longer and spend more - and with the good work of the Wairarapa tourism industry operators, inspire them to come back.

We're also here to help local tourism operators improve and grow. If you're looking to start or expand a business in the Wairarapa, we'd love you to contact us. Our team has a wealth of experience in product development, marketing, social media and PR.

Destination Wairarapa could not do the work we do without the financial support of the three district councils in Masterton, Carterton and South Wairarapa. We are also grateful for the funding we get through the Trust House Foundation and of course the hundreds of Wairarapa tourism businesses who are members of our incorporated society.
