Fodor's Review

From Upper Hutt, continuing north on State Highway 2 leads to the Wairarapa region, but just beyond Upper Hutt, look for Kaitoke Regional Park, a great camping and picnic spot with pleasant walks by the river. In the park, LOTR fans 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.
