Waitangi Day Race Meet

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.

This is a nine card race meet – first race at 12.27pm and last at 5.12pm.


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.
