Take a short, family-friendly walk to discover some of the most interesting coastline in the Wairarapa region.
On the Deliverance Cove Track, an easy 1.5-hour walk, you can choose between two different, but equally stunning routes.
Option one passes through pine forest above the lagoon at Castlepoint Scenic Reserve and follows the boundary to the base of Castle Rock. Alternatively, head south and follow the track through the dunes to meet the boundary track at the saddle.
Either way will reward you with spectacular views of the reef, lagoon and the famous Castle Rock – known as Matira in Māori.
This is also the only place in the world where you can find the rare Castlepoint daisy which grows on the limestone of the reef and Castle Rock.
