Featherston is a small town located in the Wairarapa region. Featherston’s history is strongly linked to the railway, but these days it’s the place to rest and recover after biking the nearby Rimutaka Cycle Trail, a 115km trail on Nga Haerenga, The New Zealand Cycle Trail network. It is home to The Fell Locomotive Museum which houses H199, the only locomotive of its type in the world, and is the gateway to the wild stretch of cliffs, rocks and water that is Palliser Bay. Palliser Bay is one of region’s scenic highlights with an historic lighthouse, native fur seals and the Putangirua Pinnacles, which provided an eerie backdrop in Sir Peter Jackson’s The Return of the King movie.
