Palliser Paradise

Cape Palliser at the southern tip of the North Island can be a wild, windswept place. That ought to be all the excuse anyone needs to curl up in the sublime comforts of Wharekauhau Country Estate. It’s the ultimate escape from the rat race – just you, the elements, a host of luxurious comforts, dozens of nearby Martinborough wineries and a 2,000 hectare working sheep station to explore. And then there’s the food – a delicious rotation of local seasonal ingredients presented in award-winning dishes that you can now ‘take home’ with you – well…… you can take home Wharekauhau’s new “Taste & Flavour Cookbook” at least. Signature dishes like the lodge’s Wild Native Bush Honeycomb Ice Cream are among the culinary secrets revealed.
