Explore New Zealand’s newest wine region with three cellar doors all within a few minutes of each other, if you prefer someone else to do the driving while you do the tasting, Watiaki Wine Tours is the solution for you. The bespoke and personalised tours give a much deeper insight into the wine region than visitors can assess by themselves.
With the braided Waitaki River running past Kurow, there are beautiful wetlands to explore, and a Braided River Jetboat trip will get you up close to the bird life and stories of what makes the braided river so unique and special. Unlike other jetboat tours, Braided River Tours can be made as high adrenaline or as peacefully idyllic as you would like.
To see over the region, take the Kurow Hill walk and finish off with a trip to the Kurow Museum which give a fascinating glimpse into the area’s past.
Kurow is also the birthplace of legendary All Black Ritchie McCaw.
