And that’s what Love Wainuiomata is all about – growing Wainuiomata as a great place to live & visit.

  • a short, scenic drive to Wellington & Lower Hutt
  • big backyards & friendly community plus heaps of sport & recreation

Great place to visit

Love Wainuiomata Incorporated is community owned and driven. At the helm is our Steering Group led by passionate locals.

Guiding our work is the Wainuiomata-Development-Plan which is founded on strong community engagement.

With our community and Hutt City Council we’re creating projects that bring this vision to life.
