Valley active

The Hutt River Trail, one of the many great walking and cycling routes in the valley, runs alongside Woburn Apartments. Take a stroll or work up a sweat. Or dust off your fishing rod – the Hutt River is one of the best trout fisheries in the southern North Island.

Few places are better endowed with sporting facilities and groups than the valley. Take your pick from angling, croquet, golf, indoor bowls, lawn bowls, petanque, small bore shooting, tennis and more. Or join the aqua jogging at the acclaimed Huia swimming pool just down the road.

The valley has many beautiful gardens and active flower and gardening groups which welcome new members.

It is also surrounded by forest parks and reserves that are laced with walking tracks catering for all levels of fitness.
