Lower Hutt

Lower Hutt, New Zealand is a suburban city of 107,000 in the Wellington region, about 15 km north of Wellington city centre.

Lower Hutt is a hub for innovation, world-leading science and research institutes, excellent support services for research and development and two tertiary institutes. Lower Hutt is proud to be a city with a rich cultural diversity, and a place of choice for new migrants to New Zealand.

Lower Hutt recently embarked on a journey of growth. Hutt City Council’s long term plan
includes many new projects designed to transform the city, grow our economy and the quality of life for our residents.

The city is investing in our infrastructure and facilities, with projects underway for a hotel, commercial events centre, and development of sports and community centres. We seek to lead as an innovator, with science and technology programmes and projects to support business growth. This is matched by similar levels of growth and development around the Wellington region.

In New Zealand there’s only ever two degrees of separation - and sometimes only one. As a city council, we support and celebrate business growth and innovation. Partnerships are everywhere. Government organisations are a few minutes away in our capital city Wellington.

People quickly find common ground and work together. Whether you’re coming here to study, visit or to explore a business opportunity we invite you to meet us and discover our ‘big backyard’ of adventure and opportunity.

Nestled in a valley beneath the Tararua mountain range, Lower Hutt is an outdoor haven with over 450km of tracks and trails, 400 year old Rata trees, rivers, popular beaches, and stunning coastline.
