Wellington: Attractions and more...
Despite its small dimensions, Wellington City offers a great variety of natural
and cultural attractions.
To understand more about the history of the city, visit the Museum of Wellington City & Sea on Queen’s Wharf.
If you are looking for something particular, visit the Te Papa museum, which features Maori art and artefacts from Wellington’s Polynesian, Asian, and European roots.
Other beautiful places to visit and enjoy are surely the St. James Theatre & Opera House, the Wellington City Art Gallery, the Downstage Theatre and the Wellington Cable Car Museum.
Architecturally flamboyant, the Beehive, the Parliament building, is a New Zealand icon and really well worth a visit.
The Botanical Gardens are also a popular attraction in the city and feature the Lady Norwood Rose Garden.
The Civic Square, in the heart of the city, is a great place where to have a walk for shopping.
“Wellywood”, home to the world famous Lord of the Rings filmmaker Peter Jackson, is north of the city in the Hutt Valley.
The harbour in Wellington is a popular spot for water sports, such as kayaking and rowing.
