    Abstract The land included within the Belmont Park is made up of a stretch of hills
    that lie between the Wellington and the Porirua harbours. Over time, from
    the arrival of Maori through to the settlement of Europeans in the district,
    both harbours have been important for their resources and as places of
    occupation. It is not surprising then, that the peoples who have occupied
    the greater Wellington district, soon found routes to link these two harbours.
    It was over the lands that now lay within the Belmont Regional Park that
    these links were established. From pre-European tracks, to the building
    of permanent roads, these links provide a consistent theme and vehicle
    to tell the history of the lands within the Park
