Wellington to Napier weekend road trip


Tourist information center in Eketahuna Tourist information center in Eketahuna

The town where the residents own the grocery store, art gallery and medical centre. Eketahuna is a quintessential small kiwi town with a ‘Eke’ story unique to the passionate residents. Naturally  Pukaha, National Mt Bruce Wildlife Centre as a highlight. Together with quirky art, a marvellous model railway world, cafes and walks there are a lot of reasons to stop a while and explore the district.
