Fill the car with friends and snacks and head to Lower Hutt on The Dowse Road Trip.


Option #1

Treat Yourself


Keep it easy with a stroll through Petone’s amazing boutiques on Jackson Street

Make sure to stop by Deryn Schmidt. With her workshop nestled at the back of the store, her tailoring is as local as it is exquisite.



Option #2

The Main Attraction


Gavin Hipkins: The Domain is our blockbuster exhibition of the summer. See the world through Gavin's eyes and roam around the globe. From Wellington to Berlin, to Singapore and back this photographic trip is as delighted with history as it is with scale.

After you’ve feasted your eyes on the lush and evocative art it’s time to take a load off and sink your teeth into Bellbird Eatery's spectacular menu. With local beers on tap and locally sourced ingredients your perfect day is sorted.



Option #3

Naturally Beautiful


With beautiful braided rivers, calm beaches and bush clad hills Lower Hutt is the perfect place for walkers, runners, swimmers and explorers.


OnTrays can sort you out with an outrageously delicious picnic to enjoy on your travels (don’t forget to try one of their famous Reuben sandwiches).
