WELCOME - Kawakawa Station is the place for you! Kawakawa Station Walk is one of Wairarapa's oldest sheep stations, and the North Island's southernmost farm. Whether you're a tourist, backpacker, or photographer, Kawakawa Station is the place for you! Come revel in the breathtaking coastal views across the Cook Strait all the way to the snow-capped Kaikouras. Stray off the beaten path and traipse through the beautiful native bush whilst surrounded by spectacular river valleys, and the abundant wildlife. The Station itself is rich in history. It was first leased by the Russell family in 1847, and included an estate of approximately 10,000 acres. With his crown grants and leasehold land, John Russel began farming his 2 acres with just 3 men, 3 horses, and 1,000 sheep, for the rental sum of 24 pounds. Captain Bob Russell's schooner (a type of sailing vessel) was then used to transport the collected wool to Wellington.
