About Wellington

With a nickname such as "Windy Wellington" you could be forgiven for thinking Wellington is not a place to visit, however this is far from the truth about this vibrant, bustling compact city. Wellington is New Zealand's capital city and sits on the North Island's most southern point on the Cook Strait, hence the nickname! Wellington features a waterfront promenade, sandy beaches, a working harbour and colourful timber houses on surrounding hills. The harbour sits on a hook-shaped mass with great ferry links to Picton on the South Island. Iconic Wellington sites include the red Wellington Cable Car, Wellington Museum, Zealandia Wildlife reserve, Wellington Botanic Gardens and Mt Victoria Lookout.
