These two growing regions span the southern part of the North Island, from Kāpiti on the Tasman Sea in the west, to Wairarapa beside the Pacific Ocean in the east.

Divided by the towering Tararua Ranges, the regions are home to a thriving horticulture industry in Kāpiti, to vineyards and sheep and beef farms in Wairarapa.
