Description

Featherston Domain is a few km south of Featherston, on the shore of Lake Wairarapa. It is suitable for walkers, dogs, bicycles, boats, and some 4WD vehicles.

At the bottom of South Soldiers Settlement Road there is parking on the right beside the yacht club buildings. There is a wide 4WD dirt track that heads east along the northern end of the lake. It terminates at a stream outlet into the lake about 1.9 km from the start (wetland reserve beyond that point). Return the same way. About half way along there is narrow bridge over a stream which restricts the traffic to walkers and cyclists from that point on.

Getting there

From Featherston take highway 53 east towards Martinborough, then turn right into either Murphy's Line or South Featherston Road (which is just beyond the 100 km sign, and has a signpost for Featherston Domain). Turn right again into Lake Domain Road, and then left into South Soldiers Settlement Road which terminates at the domain.
