About Wellington

The funky little city of Wellington prides itself on being so much more than New Zealand's capital - and it delivers! Wellington offers beautiful natural attractions like the Wellington waterfront, botanic gardens, Mt Victoria and the Zealandia native wildlife sanctuary, as well as stylish dining, shopping and cultural activities.

You can explore Wellington's city centre on foot and discover a huge range of ethnic eateries, cafes, fine dining restaurants and bars that take craft beer very, very seriously.

Don't miss Te Papa, New Zealand's national museum. Situated down by the harbour, it offers several floors of fun hands-on exhibits that show off New Zealand's natural, cultural and social history, as well as hosting international exhibitions.
