Silverstream is a suburb of Upper Hutt, just under 7 km from the Upper Hutt CBD. It is in the lower North Island of New Zealand at the southern end of the city, close to the Taita Gorge, which separates Upper Hutt from Lower Hutt. The area is sited at the mouth of a small valley formed by the Wellington Region's notable tectonic activity and, in part, by Hull's Creek, which discharges into the Hutt River.[3]

Education[edit]

Silverstream has three education providers:[3]

The area is zoned to Fergusson Intermediate as its intermediate, and Upper Hutt College for college students.

Transport[edit]

Silverstream is on the Hutt Valley section of the Wairarapa railway line, operated by Metlink. The area has a station on this line; the Silverstream Railway Station. A deviation of the Wairarapa line was opened in 1954 original Wairarapa Line in Silverstream over the Hutt River.[3] The original section of the line is now owned by the Silver Stream Railway.[4]
