A forest of adrenaline, the site of a historic battle and the birthplace of McDonald’s in New Zealand!

New Zealand is a great place to visit and discover some amazing hidden gems away from the hustle and bustle of the major tourist spots.

Some of them are very accessible too like Porirua, a short 20-minute drive from our nation’s capital of Wellington.

It’s a harbourside town with unique geographical features and plenty of things to do and a great way to spend a day as part of your New Zealand road trip.

Things to do in Porirua

The lunatic asylum and original McDonald’s restaurant have both moved on but there’s still plenty to do in and around the city that’ll please people with a wide variety of interests.

Events and Festivals in Porirua

It’s always good to know if there are any events taking place when visiting as it always adds to the atmosphere and there are a few that take place in Porirua to keep an eye out for.
