The Kawakawa Station walk season begins 1st October and runs through to 30th April each year. The cost per person is 550.00 NZD for adults.
Our three-day walk is one of the Wairarapa’s best kept secrets and is the absolute best way to explore Kawakawa Station. An impressive and contrasting landscape from the foot of the Aorangi Forest Park to the bush-clad high country down to the braided river streams and out to the stunning South Wairarapa coast. You will experience endless coastal views, crystal clear streams, bird and wildlife; the list goes on.
The walk is fully catered with country-style cooking. We try to source fresh, local and organic ingredients where possible to ensure our food is tasty and nutritious. You will enjoy homemade provisions for breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert as well as ample servings of home-baked goodies. We also provide tea and coffee. Please bring your own tipple of choice.
To ensure you have an extra comfortable experience on the walk, we will transport all of your luggage and sleeping bags for you between each accommodation. This includes your beverages which we will, of course, have chilled upon your arrival at your lodgings for the night. All you need is a small day pack to carry your lunch box and drink bottle, and anything else you might need on your journey. The weather at Kawakawa Station can change quickly and without warning, so please bring wet weather protection and warm clothing so you’re always comfortable.
One of the delights on our Station Walk is our rustic accommodation. Each lodging is different, has its own story to tell, and is truly unique to Kawakawa Station. Rest assured you will have all the comforts of home including hot showers and flushing toilets. You will also be treated to comfortable beds and fluffy pillows with a quality bottom sheet and pillowcase. We will even supply you with a fresh towel and face cloth at each hut.
