Golf, gourmet foods and scenic flights are three reasons to spend some time in Paraparaumu. This sunny coastal town promises plenty to do.
As the main town on the Kapiti Coast, Paraparaumu has plenty of everything for travellers. The shopping centre has more than 50 stores, as well as banks, supermarkets and cinemas. North of the town is a farm park where you’ll find farm shows and gourmet food producers (cheese, olives, honey, ice cream and other treats). Paraparaumu Beach is the launching spot for trips to Kapiti Island. Trips to the island need to be booked at the Department of Conservation in Wellington. The Kapiti Aero Club is the place to source scenic flights and glider rides. If you love old vehicles, the local car museum has one of the largest collections in Australasia.
Functional facts: Approx. population 16,130, information centre, wide range of shops and services.
