NZ' Harbour Capital, Wellington is a compact and diverse city. Easily navigable on foot, make sure you plan a couple of days to explore. A feast of cultural attractions, over 50 galleries and museums, including the monumental Te Papa, NZ's National Museum. Stunning scenery makes outdoors a real highlight.

Alternatively relax or play in one of the many cafes, restaurants, clubs and bars. An easy city to walk around, high rise downtown gives way to suburbs of attractive architecture that cling to beautiful green hills. Catch the historic cable car to the Botanic Gardens.
