The Great Harbour Way

The Rotary Club of Hutt City actively supports this project, it links our club to issues that impact on the future of our community.

Wellington’s Harbour – Te Whanganui-a-Tara, The Great Harbour of Tara – is one of the world’s most beautiful harbours. Its clear waters are ringed by layers of grey-green hills. Its surroundings range from the soaring office towers of the city to the wild shipwreck shores of Fitzroy Bay. The harbour teems with wildlife from the seal colonies of Red Rocks, to the blue penguins which seek sanctuary at many places along the coastline, and the dolphins and orcas that regularly visit its waters.

Great Harbour Way, once completed, will provide a continuous, safe, signposted 72 kilometre route for walkers and cyclists around the entire perimeter of Te Whanganui-a-Tara, from Fitzroy Bay in the east to Sinclair Head in the west.

This will be a unique opportunity to safely walk, or cycle, the entire coastline of a major city harbour, continually touching the waters edge. You will pass wild stretches of coast, rocky headlands and sandy beaches, as well as parks, marinas, museums, cafes, theatres, charming seaside suburbs, and the capitals vibrant business and shopping centre.
