The suburb of Whitby Whitby is ideally located just 20 km from Wellington City along the motorway – and 15 km from both the Hutt Valley and Kapiti Coast. Named after the Yorkshire port town where Captain James Cook, the 16th century English discoverer carries a nautical theme into the street and neighbourhood names of the area; names such as ‘The Quarterdeck’, ‘Discovery Place’ and ‘Spinnaker Drive’. From the beginning, Whitby was a ‘planned residential community’ where the development focused on creating and maintaining a quality environment for residents. Section and street layouts were planned to blend with the terrain and a high proportion of space was dedicated to green areas, trees and recreational amenities*. The first houses were built in the area in 1970 – now there are well over 3,000 with a population of over 10,000! It continues to grow in size and popularity as people continue to crave sanctuary from the city, more space and a better lifestyle – especially those with young families.

City Shopping Centre in Porirua – one of Wellington’s largest indoor shopping centres with well over 100 retail stores. The shopping centre is just one of the many attractions in Porirua . You can also visit the Pataka Museum, ride the waves at the Aquatic Centre or take your family to the latest movie. Or head out into the great outdoors – there’s fishing and farm adventures, windsurfing, scuba diving, sailing, golfing etc.

People love living in Whitby as it has so much to offer and a strong sense of community. Whitby is a great place to be if you are in to leisure and sport. The picturesque Pauatahanui inlet is a popular place for all sorts of water sports including water skiing, kayaking and windsurfing. There are also some lovely spots for swimming on those hot summer days.

Whitby enjoys it’s own microclimate and is often warmer and less windy than Wellington, and just a twenty minute or so drive from Wellington it is a great place to get away from the bustle and hustle of the city!

If you enjoy biking or walking this is also a great place to be. There are also over 15 km of walking tracks that weave through the area and local parks offering lovely views of the bush, lakes and inlet.


Not far down the road is Plimmerton Beach – a lovely spot to enjoy the crashing of the waves onto the sand or for a leisurely stroll along the beach. Whitby boasts a shopping centre with all the essentials including a supermarket and pharmacy, plus a wide range of community organisations and amenities including three primary schools. Just down the road is the Paramata Shopping Centre with a wide range of shops and cafes plus a supermarket. Ten minutes south down the motorway is the huge North
