Wharekauhau Country Estate





  • Stretching the boundaries of luxury in a skyward direction, this Edwardian estate offers privilege and exclusivity on New Zealand's North Island. Located on 5,000 acres of pristine sheep territory - 90 minutes from Wellington - the Wharekauhau Country Estate comprises small cottages, large private holiday houses, and The Lodge, a grand communal manor where gourmet meals and boutique wines are served. Activities range from jet-boating to horse trekking and clay pigeon shooting, Tours of the locality encompass the nearby seal colony, the surrounding wineries, and the workings of the sheep farm within the property itself. While the accommodation is indeed luxurious, the surrounding pastoral landscape is just as stunning, the Wharekauhau Country Estate edging onto Palliser Bay, the Rimutaka Mountains behind, and lush New Zealand farmland all around.
