Fodor's Review

From Upper Hutt, continuing north on State Highway 2 takes you to the Wairarapa region. But if you have time to spare, stop into Kaitoke Regional Park. Just beyond Upper Hutt, it's a great camping and picnic spot with pleasant walks by the river. LOTR lovers can check out the bridge, which stood in for Rivendell, the great homeland of the elves. Pause by the crystal-clear river, flanked by towering trees and native bush, and listen to the birdsong.
