Porirua is close to a diverse collection of Wellington’s well-known sights. Two destinations that should top every visitor’s to-do list is the wonderful Pataka Museum of Arts and Culture and the iconic Plimmerton Beach. If time permits, be sure to also visit the Dowse Art Museum and Maori Treasures.
Join local sports lovers at Westpac Stadium to see cricket, rugby union or soccer in action. There’s no nicer way to meet local sports obsessives than to roar along with the crowd wearing the orange and yellow colors of local heroes, the Wellington Firebirds.
When you’re ready to slow down after a long day exploring the charming streets of Porirua, check in to one of the area's range of bed-and-breakfast, hotel and short-stay apartment options. If you’re looking for a warm welcome and a good nights sleep be sure to check out the Best Western Wellington, Johnsonville, the 83 By the Sea Motor Lodge, Lower Hutt, and the popular Quality Inn Angus, Lower Hutt.
