Queen Elizabeth Park: family-friendly fun


View the map

TAP FOR MORE INFO:

Explore one of New Zealand’s best family-friendly parks in Wairarapa. 

Queen Elizabeth Park is an 81-hectare gem in the middle of Masterton. 

There’s a large lake with pedal boats that you can hire and feed the friendly waterfowl as you potter around the shallow waters. 

A miniature train runs around the lake edge on weekends, there's a mini golf course, and kids will love the extensive adventure playground with a giant hamster wheel, castle and pirate ship. 

Cross the Waipoua River on the bouncing suspension bridge to spot – and hand-feed – fallow or red deer and let the kids have a blast at the skate park.  

Alternatively, simply take a walk beneath the boulevard of old English trees and along the top of the Waipoua River stopbank.
