Wellington from Marchant in the Tararua Ranges
Wellington From Marchant (Tararuas)Looking down the Hutt Valley towards Wellington from the southern end of the Marchant Ridge - this is a distance of about 40 kilometres. The bare tree trunks are the remains of a fire in 1938 - only a 1000 more years and you will barely notice it. The green fields below are the farms around Kaitoke with further farmland on The Plateau beyond. Upper Hutt city starts in the Hutt Valley to the right. The valley stretches past Lower Hutt to Wellington Harbour (Port Nicholson) - the blue patch before the hills on the horizon that shelter Wellington.
