Family Fun on Hutt Street

Hutt Street

Situated a short stroll from the South Park Lands, Hutt Street is the perfect starting point to fuel up before a day of family activities. Grab the gang and some takeaway treats from the Local IGA before heading to TreeClimb or a journey on two wheels and explore the Bike Art Trail or BMX City Dirt Track. You can then change the pace and spend a relaxing day lapping up some sunshine, indulging a new hobby and possibly contributing to charity.
