Site of one of the last battles between Maori and early colonial forces in the region, Battle Hill Farm Forest Park blends traditional hill country farming, forestry and environmental restoration. With its farm setting, native bush reserve and panoramic views Battle Hill provides a great opportunity to enjoy the open spaces of rural Wellington. The 500 hectares of Battle Hill are a mix of flat, rolling and steeper hill country, making it a haven for walking, horse riding, mountain biking, camping and picnicking. Ideal for open-air events, the park is very popular with community and sports clubs. School groups frequently visit, with the Ken Gray Education Centre an ideal base for their stay.
