Oriental Bay Beach

Oriental Bay is the closest place to Rydges Wellington and Wellington City in general to relax on the golden sand, soak up some rays and enjoy the water.

On a warm summers day, Oriental Bay Beach is packed with tourists and locals making the most of ‘Wellington on a good day’.

The beach is ideal for swimming, picnicking, walking or cycling on waterfront. The beach has plenty of parking available, beside Freyberg Pool and Fitness Centre, with toilets also being located here.

Features: The Carter Fountain in the centre of the bay is named after Hugh Carter, who drowned in the harbour several days after its dedication. The Southern Walkway begins at the northern end of Oriental Parade and can also be accessed from Grass Street.

History: A Council project to enlarge and enhance both Freyberg and Oriental Bay beaches was completed in 2004 using sand from Golden Bay, Nelson. The beach’s sand area is now four times larger than before, and the Freyberg Beach grass area is twice as large.
