The History of Hutt City

New Zealand Map Regional Map

Hutt City was formed on 10 October 1989 from the boroughs of Petone, Eastbourne, Wainuiomata, Lower Hutt and parts of the Hutt City Council.

Hutt City is located at the southern end of the North Island of New Zealand. It is the second largest city in the Wellington region and borders the capital city, Wellington. Hutt City is located a short 30 kilometer (25 minute) drive from Wellington International Airport.

Hutt City has an area of around 38,000 hectares. Hutt City, with a population of around 102,000, is the ninth largest city in New Zealand. It is made up of small distinct communities that provide a unique character to the area. There is a strong ethnic community and the people of Hutt City are encouraged to participate in a wide range of cultural festivals that are held in the city throughout the year. There are a number of Marae or traditional Maori meeting houses around the city that welcome visitors to come and learn about Maori culture.

Hutt City Amenities

Hutt City has wonderful amenities for everyone to enjoy - even if you are only visiting for a few hours. Hutt City has a vitality and uniqueness that is enhanced by its beautiful natural setting - a combination of hills, valleys, rivers and the sea. This setting offers residents and visitors the best of both worlds, the facilities and services of a major urban center, and the wonderful outdoors.

Hutt City has a reputation in the Wellington region for its excellent outdoor areas, particularly the Hutt River and the bush areas that ring the city. The Hutt River is one of the most striking features of the city, as it meanders down the valley before reaching the harbour at Petone. The river is popular for fishing and a variety of water sports. The Hutt River trail provides a scenic walk, extending from the mouth of the river through Hutt City.

Surrounding Suburbs

The seaside suburbs of Petone and Eastbourne provide many beaches for walks and enjoying the spectacular views across the Wellington harbor. The Western and Eastern Hills offer walks through native New Zealand bush with views across the Hutt Valley. There are an endless number of tracks winding their way through the bush, providing nature and recreational walks from one hour to an entire day.

Dotted around the city are a number of parks and gardens filled with flowers, shrubs and native plants. These gardens feature the city's botanical collection, which includes some of New Zealand's rarest native plants carefully grown in reserves to protect them from extinction. There are also many public gardens to visit and experience a New Zealand barbecue or a picnic.

Top

Leisure Activities

There are swimming pools, sports grounds, playgrounds and golf courses for everyone to enjoy. There are six first class courses to choose from in the valley, some located within minutes of the town center. These courses offer 9 or 18 holes, and provide a complete experience with driving ranges, tuition and even mini-putt. All the clubs welcome visitors to come and enjoy a game in Hutt City. During the Summer, (November to March) Hutt City is alive with people enjoying the outdoors.

Other people may be interested in visiting Queensgate - a regional shopping mall- or some of the boutique shops on the High Street.

The Dowse Art Museum offers a different and interesting collection of contemporary art and craft objects. The collection features fine art objects made from glass, ceramic, wood, textile, metal and also jewellery, as well as paintings, sculpture and photography. Its collection is unique to New Zealand. The frequently changing exhibitions at the Dowse are free to visit and feature local, national, and international artists.

Hutt City is also the manufacturing heart of Wellington. Everything from primary production through to the latest in telecommunications technology is produced in this city.

The strong and diverse workforce of the city is servicing the wider Wellington region with many people commuting to other parts of the region.

Hutt City provides a safe and attractive environment to live and raise a family. There are many primary and secondary schools as well as a range of tertiary institutions within the valley and the wider Wellington Region. International students are welcomed at many of these facilities.

2. Exchanges between Hutt City and Minoh City

Relationship with Hutt City

Minoh City has a special relationship with Hutt City, New Zealand. In 1995 an International Co-operating Cities Agreement was signed by the two cities. There is an ongoing program of exchange and activities between the people of Hutt City and Minoh City, to learn about each others' cultures.

International Co-operating Cities Agreement between Hutt City and Minoh City

Hutt City and Minoh City agree to work together as international cooperating cities and to promote understanding between their citizens by the:

  1. promotion of educational exchanges between residents
  2. promotion of cultural understanding and exchanges of cultural groups and art works
  3. joint efforts to study and address local government issues
  4. joint efforts to study and address global problems including human rights and environmental issues
  5. promotion of tourism and investment

Engaged to protect Human Rights and the environment

We held some seminars regarding Human Rights and deepened our understanding of " the present condition and problems of minority ethnics such as Maori" and "Tu Tangata", which is an education program for youth. The citizens' voluntary initiatives promote international understanding and contribute to creating the high quality of our cities.

When some countries held nuclear experiments, Hutt City and Minoh City sent letters to ask them to abandon the experimentation of nuclear bombs under a joint signature. We have joined together to contribute to peace and global stabilization, as members of a global society and as citizens living on the same earth.

Hutt Minoh Friendship House

The opening of Hutt Minoh Friendship House( 外部サイトへリンク ) on May 8 1999 strengthened the International Co-operating Cities relationship between Hutt City and Minoh City. This house was refurbished as Hutt Minoh Friendship House to be used for international exchange between New Zealand and Japan.

The refurbishment of the house had three important elements:

  1. The restoration of an important aspect of New Zealand's heritage;
  2. To provide exhibitions and information about Japanese culture at the house so that people can experience, learn, and understand the Japanese way of life
  3. To provide a center to facilitate exchanges and on-going friendship between the people of New Zealand and Japan.

This house enables the cultures and histories of New Zealand and Japan to meet and learn from each other. By providing visible evidence of the continuity between the past and present, a bond is strengthened between the two countries, leaving a legacy for the next generations.

It also provides a contemporary purpose, retaining the grace of the past and providing a useful resource for the future.

The interior of the house is refurbished to provide exhibitions and information on Japanese culture. It is also used as a venue for activities relating to the promotion of mutual understanding and a long-term relationship.

 Floor of Hutt Minoh Friendship House

<Ground floor>

The ground floor is converted into:

  • an entry foyer displaying New Zealand and Japanese crafts
  • a Japanese cultural information and exhibition room
  • three conference rooms.

The ground floor is open to the public for:

  • exhibitions and information of Japanese culture, with items available for short-term borrowing
  • seminars, activities and events to experience, learn, and understand Japanese culture and language
  • youth exchanges between New Zealand and Japan including outdoor and nature activities at Jubilee Park, and
  • a venue for meetings or events to increase awareness of each other's culture and society to build mutual understanding between New Zealand and Japan.

<First floor>

  • A domestic NGO uses the second floor as a rental contract.

Symbol of our friendship, "POUWHENUA"

This is a traditional Maori carving, called a Pouwhenua in the Maori language. It has been carved from New Zealand Totara timber and donated by Hutt City.

The figures at top and bottom are called a Manaia. These are portrayed in the eastern and western Maori styles. New Zealand paua (abalone) shell has been used for the eyes. The gouges used over the surface of the panel represent the oceans.

In the center is a dove, representing Rangimarie (peace). The Pouwhenua attempts to link the east and the west known as Te Timatanga (The beginning). Ancient Maori believed that this subject came about from the creation of heaven and Earth, with the rising of night and day from the east, finishing in the west.

This Pouwhenua was carved by Mr. Bryce Manukonga as a "symbol of friendship between the citizens of Minoh and Hutt City". It is also intended to be a "symbol of peace and friendship to all cultures."

The Pouwhenua was unveiled at Maple Hall in Minoh City on the 4th Anniversary of the international cooperating cities agreement between Hutt City and Minoh City on 16 July, 1999.

Skype Project

Between Minoh and Hutt Cities, the time difference is only three hours (during summer time 4 hours) even though the distance is over 9,000km. 

To make the most of this, we set up big displays at two schools(Saito No Oka Gakuen, Todoromi No Mori Gakuen) and the Multicultural Center in Minoh. They are connected with two schools(Tui Glen School( 外部サイトへリンク )), Epuni Primary School) and the War Memorial Library(Central Library) in Hutt City. 

We connect with "Skype TM" by using the displays , so students and citizens between Minoh and Hutt City can communicate freely with each other in real time.
