Foreshore | Petone, New Zealand

September 5, 2015

The first British settlers arrived on Pito-one’s shores on the ship Aurora on 22nd January 1840 and established the now thriving suburb known as Petone, located just 15km north of Wellington CBD.


The Petone Wharf was built in 1883 by the Gear Meat Company to load and unload ships from the meatworks. Today the wharf is mostly used for fishing, and the occasional ferry.


If it’s not too windy, grab some fish ‘n’ chips from the local shop and head over to the wharf. It’s a great place to relax and enjoy the view of Matiu (Somes Island) and Wellington.


Just be warned, you will make some seagull friends who will be happy to share your fish ‘n’ chips!
