Sutton Reserve

Sutton Reserve in Lyttelton used to be a Māori Pa site and was also the place where Māori held a market where fruit and vegetables were sold to the early settlers.

It is now home to a Pou Whenua (a traditional Maori carved pole that mark Māori territorial boundaries or places of significance and are a link between the people and the land). This pou is called Ohinehou Pou after a female ancestor or guardian of the area.
