Only 45 minutes north of Wellington City, the spectacular Kaitoke Regional Park covers 2860 hectares in the foothills of the Tararua Ranges. Steep, bush-clad hills, the Hutt River gorge and centuries-old rata, rimu and beech forest feature in this magnificent natural setting.
Swim in tranquil river pools, or explore beautiful bush clad tracks, some suitable for wheelchairs. Walk the Ridge Track for wonderful views of the Upper Hutt valley, or visit the magical spot used as a set for Rivendell in the Lord of the Rings trilogy.
Stay the night at the campground and enjoy the BBQ facilities.
