Tourist information and destination rating

Masterton is the largest town in the region Wairarapa, New Zealand . It spreads in the southern part of the North Island, between Wellington and Palmerston North . Masterton is famous especially for its annual sheep shearing competition - the Golden Shears. The Lake Park was opened in 1988. It is a popular tourist destination - especially for families with children and for fishermen. The park has artificial lakes that are regularly filled with trouts. Close to the centre of Masterton spreads another beautiful park - the Queen Elizabeth Park. The trees growing here were planted in 1877. There is also a pond allowing boat riding. We can find here an aquarium, an aviary and a deer-park, too. The next interesting site in Masterton is the Hood Aerodrome - a skydiving training centre, where you can arrange a flight in a historic aircraft. In the surroundings of Masterton, there is the Tararua Forest Park with a number of hiking trails.
