Mini Guide for Wellington

Wellington is the capital of New Zealand and the country’s 3rd largest city. It is a harbour city ringed by mountains and a popular destination for first time visitors to the region. It’s home to the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra, the Royal New Zealand Ballet and has an internationally acclaimed Arts Festival. Wellington Airport is about 8 kilometres away from the City.  

Hiring a car will help you to take in the sights during the day then eat at one of the city’s renowned restaurants before heading off to a show, opera, or concert in the evening. The next day you can then take the scenic drive along the natural harbour and walk out to the Miramar Peninsula.
