Makara is a locality located at the western edge of Wellington, New Zealand, close to the shore of the Tasman Sea.[1]

With winding road access from Karori or Ohariu, Makara is a rural area with sparse development.

In the nineteenth century there was a small amount of gold-mining but no large-scale workable deposits were ever found.
