Carterton District Council
Carterton district is bounded by the Waiohine River to the south and the Waingawa River to the north and stretches from the Tararua Ranges to the west to the Pacific Ocean to the east.

Mt Holdsworth situated in the Carterton district is the main entry point into the Tararua Forest Park. The Waiohine Gorge also situated in Carterton gives access to the Tararuas and has the longest swing bridge of its type in New Zealand.

Gladstone and East Taratahi are rural communities to the east and northeast of Carterton urban area where grapes and olives thrive. Further east from the Maungaraki Ranges to the coast, forestry is becoming increasingly predominant. The rural land on the western side of the urban area is predominantly used for traditional pastoral farming. Situated a Waingawa north of Carterton township is a large industrial park which is the location of two significant wood processing mills and several smaller operations associated with wood processing, transport businesses and a road construction firm.
