More than just a political capital, the city and its surrounds offer a range of things to see and do.
Easy to navigate due to its relatively small CBD and efficient public transport, Wellington makes it easy to experience the city and its surrounds. Stand out destinations include downtown Wellington’s cafes and boutique stores, Mount Victoria and Wellington Harbour (dubbed Te Whanganui-a-Tara in the Maori toungue).
In terms of things to do in Wellington, there is a fairly wide range of options that should cater to most interests, many of which are free of charge or at the very least, reasonably priced. Within the city itself, you have local highlights such as the beautiful wood and stained glass of the Old St. Paul’s Cathedral and the vibrant flowers and plants at the Wellington Botanic Gardens, as well as the Museum of Wellington City and Sea which does a great job of showcasing the city’s strong maritime history.
Looking outside its borders, both Mounts Victoria and Kaukau make for great walking and trekking destinations that offer great views once a fair height up their slopes.
