Tuatara Brewery

Wellington's oldest craft brewery (l,d; $$)

Tuatara Bavarian Hefe

It’s tough to beat Tuatara Brewery if you’re into craft beer. There’s a tap room, tasting and a food menu featuring platters and pizza – all in Paraparaumu, 55km north of Wellington on SH1.

The area may seem a tad industrial but you’re here to try the award-winning brews of Wellington’s oldest and best known craft brewery.

You’ll want to have your own wheels, though you can take a train from Wellington.
