Fodor's Expert Review Dry Creek Quarry

Wellington Local Interest–Sight

Heading north from Petone on State Highway 2, you can enjoy views of the distant Tararua Ranges, which are snow covered in winter. If you're a Lord of the Rings fan, stop by the Dry Creel Quarry, where the scenes of Helms Deep and Minas Tirith were filmed; it's at the bottom of Haywards Hill Road—look for the traffic lights for the turnoff from the highway.
