Explore the Beauty of Wellington

In Wellington you’re just a short distance from a wealth of exciting things to do, from wildlife sanctuaries and cute seaside villages to vast parks and pristine beaches.

Most visitors find themselves drawn to the inner city, where the hubbub of excitement can be found on a daily basis. Pervading the waterfront is Te Papa Tongrewa, an interactive museum that’s one of the most significant attractions in the whole of New Zealand, and in the evenings you’ll find a collection of live theatre, dance performances and music of all genres. The creative side to Wellington really comes to life here and it becomes even clearer why so many people love this city.

Why visit Wellington?

  • It’s a gastronomic experience, with more restaurants per head than New York City, so you’re guaranteed to find something to entice you.
  • It’s easy to navigate, thanks to its relatively diminutive size, so you can sample a little of everything it has to offer during your stay.
  • The inner city is crammed with boutiques, galleries, cafés and restaurants – it has it all.
  • If you tire of city life, you’re just a stone’s throw from the natural side of Wellington where you can go hiking or sea kayaking.
  • There are some great tours to make the most of while you’re here, including a tour of the former Lord of the Rings sites, the Parliament buildings and a wine tour of the village of Martinborough.
