Wellington City information

Your Wellington City Destination Guide

After one visit, you’ll begin to understand why Lonely Planet labelled Wellington the ‘coolest little capital city in the world’. Have a read of our top destinations for your next, or first, Wellington visit.

Experience the immersive Museum of New Zealand

Head on down to the waterfront and treat yourself to Te Papa Tongarewa Museum, otherwise known as New Zealand’s national museum. Te Papa Tongarewa literally translates to ‘container of treasures’, and this is a very apt description.

Marvel at the wealth of Māori culture, heritage, art and culture and extraordinary history that call Te Papa home. Experience stories of the country’s beautiful past and its unique environment in a series of interactive exhibits.

Chug up to the lookout in Wellington’s Cable Car

This faithful antique cable car has been dutifully climbing up to Kelburn Lookout since 1912. While it certainly isn’t the fastest way to the top, the journey offers a relaxing, scenic route with panorama views of the sprawling cityscape and winding coast. Otherwise, if you’re feeling energised, you can attempt to hike up the hill yourself from Lambton Quay in the waterfront central district.

If you opt for the comfortable and less sweat-inducing option of the cable car, you will also be able to step out into the small museum located at the summit’s cable car terminal. Here, you can view the original cable car used on the very same tracks.

Lose yourself in the Wellington Botanic Gardens  

If you listened to our last suggested activity, then you should now find yourself conveniently located next to the lush oasis that is the Wellington Botanic Gardens. Sprawling across 25 hectares of the city’s hillside, this must-visit natural attraction is packed-full of blooming flowers, the famous Lady Norwood Rose Gardens and your usual spread of native flora displays. Make sure you also pay a visit to the Carter Observatory to catch its immersive planetarium show.

Mosey out to Princess Bay

A lazy 9 km drive south of the CBD, Princess Bay offers a popular sheltered sweep of rock pools and sandy beaches to enjoy. On a clear day, you’ll be afforded a generous view that extends out to the South Island itself. Explore the coastal track just above the beach and head to the lookout point for even more gorgeous views. 

Needless to say, Wellington offers a number of fun and memorable experiences for the curious traveller. Who’s booking a ticket?
