Keep an eye out for our 2018 Gardens tour.
The Wairarapa Spring Garden Tour features the popular Wairarapa Gardens weekend; an annual fundraiser for the Pukaha Mount Bruce wild life sanctuary.
Our first afternoon includes free-time in Greytown for your choice of designer boutique shopping, a picturesque country cycle ride, a heritage walk, or a visit to the Cobblestone museum. There's certainly no shortage of activities and sights to choose from in this pretty town.
The highlight of the weekend is the opportunity to visit a variety of private gardens on show around Masterton and Eketahuna. Welcome Tours has created a varied gardens itinerary that promises to delight our guests (images of some of the gardens we will visit are below).
On Sunday we are in for a treat with wine-tasting and platters at the celebrated Poppies vineyard.
