The city of Lower Hutt lies 15km north east of Wellington on the North Island of New Zealand. As the city of Wellington has expanded the settlement of Lower Hutt has become more like a residential outer suburb.
Lower Hutt is sited on the lower valley of the Hutt River. The valley widens as the river nears its mouth, so the city forms a triangle with its longest side along the shoreline. The Hutt River forms one of the most striking features of the city and with urbanization of the river’s lower flood plain, the threat of flooding persists.
Much of the land adjacent to the river is protected as a reserve and forms a wonderful recreational feature, particularly for walking. Other popular sports in the area are mountain biking and hiking.
