Lower Hutt

Lower Hutt, (pop 95,500) also known as Hutt City, is a New Zealand city in the lower (southern) valley of the Hutt River, to the northeast of Wellington city. It is the ninth-largest city in New Zealand. The region is popular for outdoor sports, especially mountain biking, hiking, fishing and swimming.

Having absorbed the former Borough of Petone, Lower Hutt strengthened its image as the Wellington region's industrial centre (not just a dormitory suburb). The Waiwhetu Stream has the reputation of surpassing all other New Zealand rivers in pollution and toxicity.

Lower Hutt also encompasses Wainuiomata and the former Boroughs of Eastbourne and Petone.
