Te Āti Awa settled on the bay before European arrival, Maru-Kai-Kuru was the name of the village sited at the northern end of the bay.

In 1839 the bay was sold to the New Zealand Company along with most of Wellington. In 1907 the land was transferred to the Royal New Zealand Navy, and in 1946 it was transferred again to the Royal New Zealand Air Force to accommodate up to 300 staff. The New Zealand Defence Force owned land on Shelly Bay until 1995 when the then Air Force Base was closed.

On 14 February 2009 the land was handed over to Taranaki Whanui ki Te Upoko o Te Ika as part of a Treaty of Waitangi settlement.

Shelly Bay circa 1899
