Reference Number: A-146-001

A hill with fern and low scrub in the foreground, with a view across the bush-covered Hutt Valley and Petone to the Wainuiomata Hills, with the Harbour, Somes Island and four immigrant ships, the harbour entrance and Miramar Peninsula. There are houses built by the first European settlers on the beach, possibly along with the buildings of Petone Pa, although the latter are indistinguishable from the settlers' houses. The Pa may be hidden from sight by a low rise to the right.
