Levina Avenue

FIND THESE STEPS – Epuni Street is off Aro Street, and just a short walk away is Levina Avenue, between 37 and 39 Epuni; it ends among a few cottages at the top.

Ms Irvine-Smith records that Epuni Street is properly ‘Te Puni’; named for the rangatira of Petone, and one of the signatories of the Waitangi Treaty.

The Avenue is named for Lavina Adams, the wife of one of the original land owners of this area. There’s only 50 steps, and just up to a tiny garden area surrounded by a few villas, but it is a lovely little excursion with a great view across to the Aro Valley hills.
