It’s Wairarapa’s best kept secret – the Waitangi Day race meet at Tauherenikau.

Get your family and friends together, pack a picnic – or enjoy a good-old-fashioned hotdog. All guests have a blast on-track with live music, free kids entertainment and exciting racing action.

Information on race times, transport options and admission will be provided closer to event date.


During the Tauherenikau Races, we invite you to enjoy a shady spot under the trees for ten or more people in your own private 3x3m marquee, as part of our marquee village. To hire a mini marquee, please click here.
