So, Tell me About 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.

How Can I get There?
There are flights to Wellington International Airport from airports in New Zealand and Australia. To get from the airport to the city you can take the Metlink bus 91. If you are travelling from other parts of New Zealand you can catch a train from Auckland or take an Intercity long distance coach. The city is easy to get around by foot, or you can use the bus and trolley bus system.

What can I see in Wellington?
You can take the Wellington City Sights hop on, hop off bus tour, to find your bearings in the city. Have a picnic at the Botanic Gardens and visit the Carter Observatory to find out more about the New Zealand skies. From here you can ride on the Kelburn Cable Car to Lampton Quay. Take a ferry from Queens Wharf to Matiu or Somes Island, in the past it has been a quarantine centre for animals (and humans!) and also an internment centre for dangerous prisoners during the world wars. To discover more about the city’s history and maritime heritage you can visit the Museum of Wellington City and Sea and the famous Te Papa National Museum that celebrates the country’s culture.

What Else Can I do?
For animal lovers, you can see over 500 different animals at Wellington Zoo and see rare local wildlife at Zealandia. Also, head out to Red Rocks and see the seal colony. If you want to relax in the sunshine, go to Oriental Parade and sunbathe on the beach and enjoy lunch in one of the many cafes there.
