The area and getting around

Wellington for adventurous spirits

Wellington is the capital of New Zealand and it seats in the southernmost point of the North Island. The city has public spaces dotted with cafes, parks, great outdoor activities and a lovely promenade to enjoy lovely walks in the afternoon and the evening. Oriental Bay beach is a nice spot for swimming and soak up in the sun. Surrounded by nature, it is also a great holiday place for those looking for active tourism. Wellingtonians are known for being some of the fittest New Zealanders so you can join them in this healthy lifestyle walking, running, skating or cycling in and around the city.

Tourism with great emotions

Visit some markets and stroll around its stalls. The favourite with locals is Harbourside Market every Sunday until 2pm. Full of colourful lanes of veggies and fruit and some trucks with great coffee and nibbles. Moore Wilson’s Market opens every day and it’s where the restaurant owners shop. It is also a Deli and fresh food store. Finally, we recommend the Underground and the Night Market, both with buzzing atmospheres, great food and live music. For those Lord of the Rings followers, take a Wellington Movie Tour and experience New Zealand’s film capital.

Travellers and activities

Wellington for culture lovers

New Zealand is full of museums and art galleries with lots of history within its walls. Go to Te Papa Museum and discover fascinating interactive stories about the region and New Zealand in general. Learn more about the geological, cultural and social history of the country in a completely innovative way. Visit the regular exhibitions and displays with top-rating international tours. And even better, general admission is free! There is no excuse to visit it, is it?

Wellington for nature lovers

Enjoy the best views of the city, from the top of Mount Victoria. Get a 360 degrees view from the lookout point. Head to the top taking a pathway through the bush-covered town Belt or drive all the way up. Get your reward at the top - stunning panoramic views of Tinakori HIll, the Hutt Valley and Eastern harbour bays and the Miramar Peninsula. To spend your day at the top you can take a picnic with you and relax watching cruises in and out of the harbour and wait for the sun to go down and the light to come up. Those early birds can also enjoy the sunrise! Do not forget your camera.

New Zealand was the first country to give women the right to vote and Wellington, besides being its capital city, is the southernmost capital in the world.

Top 5 travel tips in Wellington

1. Discover the Maori culture

Take a weekend trip to Rotorua and visit the famous geothermal village of Whakarewarewa. This is the most attractive living Maori village you can visit and enjoy a guided tour with a local guide who will tell you all about the geysers and how their little community live day after day. Owned and run by the locals, enjoy a typical show with dances and songs in their language and visit the hot pools and bubbling mud and learn how residents use them even to cook their food.

2. Get on the famous Wellington Red Car

The Red Cable Car is a Wellington icon that goes from Lambton Quay to Kelburn. At the end of the journey you can enjoy stunning views from the lookout at the top. Spend some time at the Cable Car Museum and Space Place at Carter Observatory. Enjoy some time discovering the magic of the planets with interactive displays and a digital planetarium full of telescopes. When you put your feet back on the ground, go to the Botanic Garden.

3. Let the locals show you their heritage

What is the best way to discover everything about a place? With a local. That’s right! Enjoy a guided tour of Wellington with experienced guides who know the area in depth. Walk the city’s streets, visit the coffee roasters and taste some New Zealand’s delicacies and gourmet foods. Outside the city, head off-road to visit the most spectacular fauna, go for a mountain biking tour with an expert or take the sky and get an aerial view of the city. You will not regret it.

4. Stroll around Cuba Street

The most bohemian and chic area of Wellington is full of artists, vintage lovers and hipsters. This is a haven with the most colourful shops, trendy cafes and unique bars.
