Wainuiomata is one of Lower Hutt's most underrated suburbs.
Mountain bike tracks, scenic walks, parks & play grounds, sports grounds, the golf course, Queen Street shops & much more.
But don't take our word for it, here's what Alex (one of our recent purchasers) had to say about life in Wainuiomata.
How long have you lived in Wainuiomata?
About 9 months.
Where in Wainuiomata is your townhouse?
A few minutes' drive from the entrance of Wainuiomata on Fitzherbert Road.
Who lives in your townhouse with you?
My family. My wife and two daughters, aged three years old and one month.
What does an average commute look like for you?
It's either a bus, I catch the 170 outside of the BP on Wainuiomata Road to Queensgate Mall and then jump on the 110 to Petone, where I work, or we drive as a family over the hill and through Petone to get to my office. Then my wife drops off our toddler at daycare and heads to work in Lower Hutt.
How long does it take you to get to work in the morning?
Because of some road works it's like 25 minutes to half an hour, which is super long.
Normally it would be like 12 to 15 minutes to get to Petone.
12 - 15 minutes from Petone
How do you spend your weekends?
Normally, go to the beach, park or cafes.
Aside from home, what are your top five spots in Wainuiomata?
The skate park on the Strand, the walk up Wainuiomata hill, the field next to our house, the cricket pitch & the Fish n' Chip shop.

"The skate park on the Strand" - Alex
Have you been to any recent community events?
Yeah on the weekend we went to a fair down at Arakura Park hosted by Love Wainuiomata. Free sausage sizzle, games and even a petting zoo.
Lot’s of family activities
Do you think there's misperceptions around what it's like to live in Wainuiomata?
Yeah, people probably think it's further than it actually is, and maybe it's not as isolated as you might think it is. Like, there's the BP, Countdown, a couple of parks. It's got most of the things you'd need.
What is it like to live in a development?
It’s good! We've made friends with other families in the development so that makes it way better.
You don't actually really notice your neighbours as much as you think you will.
We've got plenty of Townhouses available in 2023, some due for completion as soon as May.
