Upper Hutt


836 Fergusson Drive

We provide a comprehensive, impartial information and booking service for Upper Hutt, the Wellington Region and New Zealand for accommodation, activities, attractions and travel bookings.

The Upper Hutt i-SITE Visitor Information Centre is part of New Zealand’s official nationwide Visitor Information Network.

The Upper Hutt i-SITE is located in the popular Whirinaki Whare Taonga building, which is a must see with its ever changing exhibitions and fabulous on-site café.

The natural beauty of Upper Hutt is apparent everywhere you look. Our river, the Awakairangi (Hutt), snakes its way through the beautiful, bush-clad valley.

The best way to spend a day in our city is on a bike or foot. Only a ten-minute drive from the city centre you will find yourself marvelling at centuries-old Rimu, listening to the call of the tui, and admiring the playful flight of the piwakawaka (fantail).
