About South Wairarapa District Council

SWDC is proud to serve and support this fabulous part of New Zealand with its true ‘mountains to the sea’ experience. South Wairarapa encompasses the three rural towns of Featherston, Greytown and Martinborough, each with their own charm and attributes. We have a vast area of rural hinterland home to many more small communities, edged by the Rimutaka/Tararua Ranges and cradled by kilometres of rugged coastline.

Our vision is to be ‘an open, energetic and unified community’ and we are working hard to achieve this. We believe that a Council should be part of the community it serves and therefore welcome feedback from residents and visitors alike regarding our district and Council services.
