Overlooking the Cook Strait which divides the North and South Island, the nation’s capital has become much more than just a ferry port. The recent Lord of Rings films have reinvented Wellington as the culture and arts capital, or the middle of ‘Middle Earth’. The ever increasing list of attractions means that one night here is never enough!
If your interest lies in learning about all things New Zealand, then a visit to the national museum of Te Papa is a must. This huge museum showcases New Zealand’s history from formation to modern day. The museum is located on Wellington’s harbour, also known as Oriental Bay, which is home to an increasing number of al fresco restaurants, bars and walk ways all offering spectacular water views. The true expanse of the harbour can be viewed from the top of Mount Victoria which can be easily accessed by car if you did not pack your hiking boots.
Within the city you will find the iconic Wellington Cable Car which departs from Lambton Quay to Kelburn lookout via the Botanical Gardens. The city is also home to Cuba Street with its vibrant mix of bohemian shops, lively bars and superb restaurants.
Wellington is also the home to Weta Workshop, the brains and craftsmanship behind many of the recent film blockbusters produced or filmed in New Zealand, including the Lord of the Rings trilogies. The workshop is open to the public and offers interactive demonstrations and the opportunity to get your hands on some authentic props.
Ten minutes outside of the city is Zealandia – a 225 hectare section of untouched bush land made to resemble New Zealand prior to the influence of man and includes many species of Native Fauna and Flora including the elusive Kiwi.
The city also famously is the arrival and departure point for the ferry services which take you from one island to another. Ferries will depart from Wellington to Picton on the South Island and vice versa.
