Welcome to Kawakawa Station Walk

Welcome to Kawakawa Station Walk - the home of one of the Wairarapa's oldest sheep stations and the North Island's southern most farm walk - and - as seen on Country Calendar! Kawakawa Station walk offers a 3 day, 3 night walk through farmland and bush, encompassing sweeping Cook Strait and South Island views, comfortable accommodation and great food.

We warmly welcome you to this amazing corner of coastal New Zealand.

This unique 3 day 3 night walk is a fulfilling walk taking in the breathtaking coastal views across the Cook Strait to the snow capped Kaikouras.  Beautiful native bush, spectacular river valleys and an abundance of wildlife make this a very picturesque walk.

Staying in cosy, comfortable farm accommodation along with all the mod cons, all your meals are taken care of (unless you decide on the self catered option). The food is locally inspired, sourced and produced that certainly wont leave you hungry!

So what are you waiting for?  Give us a try for your next escape to the wilderness.

Season: November 1st – April 30th.

Walk caters for 2 – 8 people.


"Kawakawa Station is now entering its lambing season, and according to an Outdoor Access Code:

Do not disturb the field with lambs or other young animals. Heavily pregnant ewes may abort their lambs if they get chased or unduly disturbed. Entering a field with ewes and lambs may cause the lamb to separate from its mother. This may lead to the lamb being rejected by the ewe. Avoid disturbing sheep around lambing time by going into a neighbouring field or land next to it.

As a result, we regret to inform you that the Kawakawa Station Walk (KSW) is temporarily suspended between 1 July and 31 October. We would be delighted to continue taking bookings for walks outside this period."
