Autumn adventures with the kids

Crisp days and golden leaves mixed with plenty of indoor adventure for the whole family.

A ready-made family day out

9:00am - grab a headlamp to explore the Percy Scenic Reserve Weta Cave and carry on up the track for the waterfall - especially after a rainy day or catch a movie at Light House Cinema

11:00am - see who can bowl spares and strikes at Strike Entertainment

12:00pm - enjoy a meal out at your favourite place to eat

1:00pm - hang upside down at HangDog Indoor Rock Climbing or test your putting skills at Golf Warehouse Mini Putt

3:30pm - try different flavoured icecream at Zany Zeus (because these are good all year round)

5:00pm - carve up the ice at Frosty Spot Ice Rink.



Hunt treasure all year round

Explore, navigate and find places you never knew existed! Download the free Geocaching app and head outdoors, decode the hints and follow the GPS on your phone to find the prize. The geocaches come in many different shapes, sizes and difficulties but it won't take long before you're telling each other 'Found it!'. Some are hidden in plain sight, so keep your eyes peeled and whits sharp. 

There are 2,631 geocaches near Lower Hutt and millions around the world just waiting to be found - like the worlds six oldest geocache hidden somewhere in Wainuiomata.

Warning - this is addictive!

An ultimate Hutt picnic

Reward the family after a hard days exploring with a hamper filled with yummy locally made goodies and enjoy earlier sunsets at Days Bay.
