The southern region of New Zealand's North Island boasts a wonderful variety of landscapes to explore. From the delightful vineyards of Martinborough to the world's most southern capital – Wellington – there is certainly a lot to discover. While Martinborough may be a small town, the variety of wine and activities available will keep you busy, while bustling (and windy) Wellington, a city built on dramatic hills,
is fast approaching international fame for the quality of films that are produced every year, giving it the nickname 'Wellywood'. Starting in the small wine district of Martinborough. What it lacks in size it certainly makes up for with the style and quality of wines crafted in the area. Its town square is in the shape of the Union Jack, and is surrounded by lush greenery and a bounty of cycling and walking paths. This picturesque town draws in visitors with its charming colonial style houses and pick of over 20 boutique style wineries. Whether you prefer pinot noir, sauvignon blanc, pinot gris or all of the above, it is the quality not quantity that keeps visitors coming back. Plus, situated just an hour-and-a-half drive north-east of Wellington city, Martinborough is easily accessible for day trips or longer visits.
