Belmont is a suburb of Lower Hutt, to the north of Wellington in the North Island of New Zealand. It is on the west bank of the Hutt River, on State Highway 2 (SH 2), the Wellington-Hutt main road, and across the river from the centre of Lower Hutt.
It borders the Belmont Regional Park and as such is surrounded by native bush and beautiful views.
Belmont Regional Park is a Wellington Regional park located between Lower Hutt and Porirua, New Zealand. It is the largest of the Wellington Regional parks, stretching close to 15 kilometres (9 mi) from Wellington Harbour to Haywards and 10 kilometres (6 mi) to Porirua, containing farm land, native bush, and peaks up to 456 metres (1,496 ft) (Belmont Trig).
There are several entrances from the Hutt Valley side and two on the Porirua side. Some tracks permit mountain biking and horse riding.
The park features numerous tracks, including the 6-7 hour ‚Puke Ariki‘ traverse, which is a favourite for hikers and mountainbikers alike.
