Masterton is a great family destination. There you can find the beautiful Queen Elizabeth Park with towering English trees and fabulous Kids Own Playground. Just along the road you will also find the indoor and outdoor swimming pools and hydro-slide; The Wool Shed — the National Museum of Sheep and Shearing and Aratoi: Wairarapa Museum of Art & History.
