Accommodation in the Wairarapa

Only an hour from Wellington City by car or train, the Wairarapa is one of New Zealand’s top food and wine destinations at the heart of the Classic New Zealand Wine Trail. A day visit or overnight trip is the perfect complement to your stay in Wellington.

Tākina Wellington Convention & Exhibition Centre is now open

Tākina means to invoke, to connect, to bring forth. Tākina, the Wellington Convention & Exhibition Centre, is a place of welcoming, learning and sharing.

This innovative new facility provides 10,000 square metres of multipurpose conference and exhibition space over three floors, which can be tailored to single or multiple events. The top two floors are purpose-built conference and exhibition spaces, and the ground floor features an open public space with cafes and a visiting exhibition gallery, which will feature large international consumer exhibitions.

The scale of events Tākina will attract will bring additional investment for accommodation into the city. So, watch this space for new hotels and accommodation popping up in the Wellington Region.
