New Zealand // Wellington and around //

The Hutt Valley

At the northern end of the harbour commuter-land spreads along the Hutt Valley, the largest tract of flat land in these parts, accessible along SH2 and by suburban trains and buses. The original founding of Wellington is remembered in Petone’s Settlers Museum, while nearby Lower Hutt has Wellington’s closest campsite, a great art gallery, and is on the way to the rugged Rimutaka Forest Park.
