Carterton Nature and Eco Tourism
Carterton is the daffodil capital of New Zealand, located in the Wairarapa region. Named after the popular spring festival held since the 1920s, Carterton is a great holiday destination. Here you can discover Stonehenge Aotearoa, a modern, working version of England’s Stonehenge and stroll down the main street with its quirky blend of second hand shops and bookstores.
Carterton is also the gateway to the northern Wairarapa wine producing area of Gladstone and nearby is Mt Holdsworth, one of the main access points into the enormous Tararua Forest Park which offers endless walking, tramping, hunting and fishing opportunities for outdoor enthusiasts.
