Where Are We ?
The Waipara Sleepers is located in a small country town called Waipara which is in the North Canterbury region of the South Island on the East coast of New Zealand . We are part of the Hurunui District. Our place is only 200 meters from the junction of State Highways 1 and 7. Waipara is the fastest growing Wine and Olive area in NZ this is largely due to the micro climate of the valley which offers ideal conditions.
