Destination Wellington

Called the world’s ‘coolest little capital’ Wellington is known for its vibrant arts scene, world class café and restaurant culture, and active outdoor lifestyle.

Set around an attractive waterfront, you'll be hard pressed to find a city in the world that's easier to get around. Wellington enjoys more cafes, bars and restaurants per capita than New York City, and its coffee and craft beer producers are internationally recognised. A creative, cosmopolitan city, Wellington combines the sophistication of a capital with the warmth and personality of a village.

Wellington is home to the national museum of New Zealand, Te Papa is a fascinating visit for people of all ages telling the stories of New Zealand in a unique way. If the weather is fine, don’t miss the opportunity to ride Wellington’s historic cable car and enjoy the views of the harbour and city from the Botanic Gardens.
