Walking and Cycling

The South Wairarapa has plenty of places to explore on foot or by bike.

Greytown to Woodside Trail

Greytown to Woodside Trail

Martinborough  StoryWalk®

Wairarapa Library Service StoryWalk®

A StoryWalk® is a popular concept overseas which aims to combine physical exercise, nature and a love of reading. Using a series of posts, it tells a story along an established walkway page by page, weaving a narrative for the follower. Access the walk at Considine Park on the corner of SH2 and Princess Street, Martinborough.

The StoryWalk® project was created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, VT and developed in collaboration with Kellogg-Hubbard Library. StoryWalk® is a registered service mark owned by Ms. Ferguson.

This loop walk across farmland has spectacular views of the
Wairarapa valley and Martinborough vineyards. Near the

over the scenic Te Muna Valley. Closed during September and October for lambing. No dogs allowed.

Putangirua Pinnacles
