The Hutt Wairarapa District extends from Eketahuna in the North to Petone in the South.
Because the District covers both the Hutt Valley area and the Wairarapa it boasts a diverse population base - wine growers, farmers and horticultulists on one side of the Rimutaka's with doctors, lawyers and accountants on the "city side" of the District.
The District plays host to some 12 Craft Lodges including the Baden Powell Lodge No. 381 which caters for those Freemason's who have a connection to the Scouting or Venturer movement. Sir Baden Powell wasn't himself a Freemason, but his principles very much align to those that we hold dear as Freemasons.
The Hutt Wairarapa District also plays host to the Research Lodge of Wellington.
