Korokoro

Korokoro.jpg

Location

Identified in the original subdivision over 100 years ago as “Korokoro Village,” the area retains a strong sense of community generally found in more remote rural areas.

Located directly above Petone and the foreshore, Korokoro could be called the dress circle of the Western Hills with many properties enjoying uninterrupted panoramic views of Wellington, Lower Hutt and the harbour. This conveniently places Korokoro only 10 minutes from Wellington out of peak hour and only minutes to the Lower Hutt CBD. This, combined with the ample open spaces and established native bush/reserve areas, results in a quiet and tranquil pastoral feel.There are approximately 500 homes in Korokoro provide a diverse mix of styles ranging from early 1900’s villas and cottages through to the most modern architectural styles.

Facilities

Korokoro is often bypassed by a lot of people on their way to and from Wellington, there is a wide variety of walking tracks through bush clad hills and breathtaking views from the lookout points overlooking the Wellington harbour. It is an amazing place to escape the hustle and bustle of the busy city.

One of the well-known bushwalking tracks is the Korokoro Dam & Belmont Trig. The track follows an old steel pipeline from the Cornish Street, Petone entrance upstream through mature and regenerating bush to the Korokoro dam. The dam was the first gravity fed concrete dam in New Zealand, built to supply water for the Petone Borough in 1903. The track is suitable for walking or mountain biking (huttvalleynz.com).

 If you are up for the challenge, you can walk up to the Belmont Trig which is a 4 hour walk from two entrances (Cornish Street Petone and Oakleigh Street Maungaraki) where you will be rewarded with some of the best 360 views across the Wellington Region and to the South Island (huttvalleynz.com).

Korokoro also has a great school, which celebrated its centenary in 2004, and is the focal point of the community. The primary school caters for over 140 pupils from Year 1 – Year 8. There is also an excellent Playcentre, an active Cub and Scout Group, an Environmental Group and community swimming pool located at the School.

Historic Facts

A feature of New Zealand’s early european history is the large number of severely damaging fires that broke out from time to time in early New Zealand towns. These fires would destroy whole blocks of wooden buildings because they were built close together. Early timber buildings in Petone suffered this fate even though an artesian water supply was available. Although the ratepayers were initially reluctant to endorse the funding of a dam, they were eventually persuaded to do so to get a water supply of sufficient pressure and volume. The waters of the Korokoro stream were already in use by the Petone Woollen Mills when the Petone Borough proposed to utilise the stream for a water supply. The mill had a totara timber dam on the lower reaches to drive a turbine at the mill. Early Maori used this route to link the Porirua and Wellington harbours - Route
