Berhampore

The small suburb of Berhampore can often be overlooked as people pass through on the way to neighbouring suburbs Newtown and Island Bay. However, with a variety of restaurants, bakeries, cafes and delicatessens the suburb has a lot to offer. The suburb is also rich in history. Berhampore was named after a place in Bengal, India. When local landowner George Hunter married the daughter of Major Paul, an ex-Indian Army officer, he used the name for his holding in honour of his fatherin-law. Many of the streets in Berhampore were also given Indian names, such as Chilka St, Jaypore St and Burwah St. It has also been home to one of New Zealand’s iconic rugby grounds. Athletic Park officially opened on April 6, 1996 and the final match

played on the ground was the Wellington Lions vs Otago on Sunday, October 10 1999. A crowd of 30,000 people attended. The rugby ground was eventually demolished in 2000 and is now the site of Village at the Park Retirement Village. Recently, Berhampore School and the Berhampore Golf Course celebrated 100 years. The Berhampore Golf Course was established when a Wellington Doctor proposed the golf course as a cost-effective way of providing an activity to combat consumption, a major health issue at the time. Funds were raised and council eventually built an eight-hole course. So next time you pass Berhampore, whether it’s your Sunday stroll or just a quick drive by, be sure to explore and appreciate this hidden little gem!
