Relax in the peaceful surrounds of this hilltop site which commemorates former NZ Prime Minister, William Massey.
Located at Point Halswell on the Miramar Peninsula, the Massey Memorial is the mausoleum of William Massey, Prime Minister of New Zealand from 1912-1925, and his wife.
This striking Memorial is made of pale Takaka marble and granite, and is tucked away among native bush on top of the peninsula.
Offering panoramic views of Wellington Harbour, the Massey Memorial is a picturesque spot for a walk or picnic. The site is accessible at all times via a short walk from Shelly Bay Road.
