First Impressions

Named ‘the Hutt’ by locals, Lower Hutt is situated in the lower valley of the Hutt River, northeast of Wellington City. The region comprises a cluster of small settlements, including Petone, Wainuiomata, and Eastbourne, as well as a large area of native bush extending into the Rimutaka Ranges.
