Upper Hutt

Upper Hutt can't really be described as a tourist destination, but it's the place I grew up in and where have lived on and off. I returned to NZ in June 2012, and have just bought a house here, so expect to be here for some time.

It's more of a bed town for people working in Wellington, but there's plenty of nature to enjoy.

Here's a view of central UH from nearby hills, not a high rise in sight!

Upper Hutt has an abundance of parks and nature. It's good to get up into the hills to have a bit of a walk, or to just chill out in the park with a picnic.

Bad Press

Sometimes it does get a bit of bad press in NZ, for having Bogans, but I've always felt that this was a bit of an exaggeration.

Anyway, here's an photo unrelated to Bogans.

    My cousin lived in Lower Hut for many years but moved to Wanganui several years ago.Managed a visit to his home when we visited your amazing country last February.

      Interesting. I quite like Wanganui actually, quite a laid back provincial city.
