About Wellington

New Zealand’s capital has blossomed into a charismatic, world class city dubbed the ‘coolest little capital in the world’ by Lonely Planet. The city’s many museums and galleries are at the heart of the action, while Cuba Street’s bohemian quarter and Courtenay Place's theatre district are popular nightspots.

Wellington sits between two of New Zealand’s finest wine regions, meaning that just out of the city centre you can experience authentic Kiwi craft and culture and taste local delicacies.

The home of Sir Peter Jackson, Wellington showcases what this legendary filmmaker has achieved. If you're a fan of Lord of the Rings, the Hobbit Movies or Avatar, a visit to the Weta Workshop should be high on your to do list. 

The central waterfront connects to Oriental Bay and provides a great place for visitors to sit back and relax, swim or walk around the waterfront appreciating the views of the sparkling harbour. 

Other things to do in Wellington include riding on the Cable Car, visiting New Zealand's national museum Te Papa and walking up Mount Victoria for panoramic views of the city.
