About the trail
Located in Lower Hutt’s East Harbour Regional Park, the Kowhai Street Track is a great option for a short walk. Beginning in Kowhai Street, Eastbourne, the well-maintained track climbs to reveal wonderful views over Wellington Harbour. Roughly 1km along the track, a junction gives the option to take a longer return route via MacKenzie Road Track or a 15 minute descent to Butterfly Creek.
Butterfly Creek Valley is surrounded by silver fern and beech trees that make for a cooling walk after your initial exertion. You’ll also come across a picnic area with tables and a toilet. Depending on the track you take, walks last between 30 minute and 2 hours return.
