The Pauatahanui Inlet and wildlife reserve features the only large area of salt-marsh and seagrass in the Wellington region.

The tranquil waters are home to many boats, boatsheds, and wildlife. 

The large residential suburb of Whitby sits on one-half of the inlet, and coastal road and unpopulated rolling hills frame the other.

Location details:
