Aro Valley Wanders

By Josiah 16 Oct 2017

Aro Street has always been that quaint little nook tucked just outside the city, brimming with culture and community. It’s got everything you need, packed into one charming little valley! These are some of my go-to spots in the neighbourhood (...feel free to add your own in the comment section below).


Need a Coffee?

Aro Cafe is a trusty establishment when you're in need of a good coffee, and you can find it on the main street. They serve up an assortment of great food as well as their own house-roasted beans.

Aro Bake is an iconic bakery with a reputation for some of the best baked goods around. They also serve up coffee to pair your pastry with.

Looking for something to do?

 If it’s a rainy weekend and you need your film-fix, Aro Video contains any cinematic happiness your heart desires. 

 Wander around Holloway road and catch the last of the blossoms and see the colourful houses scattered around the hillside. 

 Go down to the park (beside The Garage Project brewery) and take a bite to eat. Or, if Wellington's weather permits, take a blanket and relax on the grass.

Looking for a spot to eat?

Rita is the new kid on the block serving up seasonal courses from Tuesday to Friday. Word On The Street food blogger Heather can give you a lowdown on this fantastic little restaurant.

Garage Project's flagship taproom serves up great eats as well as their finest craft-beers to wash everything down.

Te Aro Fish Supply is another staple to seek out when those warm summer nights roll around. Grab yourself a scoop of chips and head down to the park.
