Pahiatua New Zealand - your next destination!


Just a day trip from Wellington, Pahiatua is a true opportunity to enjoy genuine Kiwiana.

When translated from the Māori language of Te Reo, the name Pahiatua means "resting place of God", which we think is apt as our town is a prime spot for relaxation. It's the perfect getaway. 

Set in the scenic Wairarapa region, Pahiatua is great for bush treks, mountain biking or fishing in our bountiful rivers. 

Always vibrant, our main street offers travellers a wide variety of shops and boutiques as well as a prime location to enjoy a picnic along the charming and spacious garden strip.

Whether you are looking for a much-needed escape or you want to keep active through outdoor adventures, make sure to add Tararua New Zealand to your road trip itinerary. 

Surrounded by nature, you can easily fill your schedule with activities or you can visit town for shopping and dining. Enjoy exploring Pahiatua.


Whether you are looking to reel in the perfect catch from the local river or to hop on a mountain bike for a gripping ride, Pahiatua offers you a wide variety of things to do during your time away from the bright lights and traffic congestion.

Embrace nature. Savour your time and appreciate the beauty around you.


Looking for a bit of rare retail therapy? Craving a well-roasted coffee? Want to try a new, exciting dish? With dozens of shops and restaurants at hand, leave no stone unturned.

Or perhaps your mouth is parched? Quench your thirst with a Tui pale ale straight from the source at the official Tui Beer Brewery.

Pahiatua invites you to taste the finer things in life. Treat yourself.


Enriched by our Polish background, Pahiatua believes diversity plays an important role in our community. It complements our classic kiwi culture.

Whether you are with us for a few days or wish to become part of our way of life, we want the time you've spent here to be enjoyable and memorable.
