Overview

It is worth taking this winding alternative route from Wellington north. There is pleasant country scenery along the way and breathtaking views over the Kapiti Coast and out to the South Island as you reach the brow of the hill (254 meters above sea level). On especially clear days you may also spot snow-capped Mount Taranaki in the distance. Originally the main road north, this route is now accessible via State Highway 58 at Pauatahanui or State Highway 1 at Paekakariki.
