Carterton is a small town in a farming area of the Wairarapa district in New Zealand’s North Island. It is located 14 kilometres southwest of Masterton. Its population in 2001 was 4014, with a further 2800 living in the surrounding rural district.


Founded in 1857, the town was originally known as Three Mile Bush, and served as housing for workers building the road between Wellington, New Zealand and Masterton. The town describes itself as New Zealand's daffodil capital.


Carterton was the birthplace of Sir Bob Charles, the first left-handed golfer to win a Major, the British Open in 1962.
