Upper Hutt

Discover forest walks, a craft beer village and trendy boutiques all in Wellington’s hidden gem

Upper Hutt is an adventure seeking, nature filling hub for everyone. From chasing elves around Kaitoke (an ancient rainforest that was transformed into the elven realm of Rivendell for Lord of The Rings), to catching views of the Hutt Valley on top of the ever popular Cannon Point walkway. Prefer two wheels? You can't beat cycling through the historic railway tunnel along the Remutaka Cycle Trail.

We love Brewtown, amazing beer, food and atmosphere!

Packed with boutique contemporary stores, plus a ton of trendy op-shops, Upper Hutt is a shopaholics dream.

Imagine spending the day browsing high-end labels at Wildrose, seeing locally made jewellery being crafted before your eyes at Rawson Brother's Jewellery and finding a statement piece for your home from Humble & Grand.

For those seeking an earth-friendly experience, thrift your way around Upper Hutt's six amazing op-shops.



There are masses of tame animals roaming Staglands, set in beautiful NZ bush. The whole place looks like a cool film set - with little grottos, lakes, waterfalls and cute farm buildings dotted around
