About Wellington, New Zealand

Wellington is the capital city of New Zealand / Aotearoa. It is also the cultural, administrative and political center of the country. Two aspects of the city that will immediately strike any visitor are the sprawling harbour and the dramatic, hilly terrain. Everywhere you go, the sounds and smell of the ocean hang in the air, and green hills and valleys wrap you in a bear-hug embrace.

We took a morning tour along "the wild coast". Lovely views, followed by some sheep dog trials and a stupendous morning coffee with cakes, sandwiches, pastries et al. Back to the capital city which is extremely attractive and small enough to be quite manageable by foot. Deciding not to take the cable car journey up into the hills above the city, we went to the harbour area instead. We were well rewarded. About five minutes from the "Beehive" New Zealand's stunning parliament building, the harbour area has been developed sympathetically and is easy on the eye. All manner of water sports were visible in the bay as we took a beer in one of the many cafes and bars on offer. Idealic.

Toured the parliament, ugliest building ever (sorry New Zealand), could not bring myself to buy Starbucks cup with picture of ugly parliament building. My children enjoyed the botanic garden excursion.

If you are a movie buff you must visit Weta Studios. We loved the Lord of the Rings props and got photos with Gollum and the trolls too but there are props from many other movies that are worth seeing too. Very easy to find on the hop on hop off bus. The Great War Museum is also the best I have ever seen.


Some of the reviews here astound me. People are either fickle or just daft. It's called Windy Wellington. The weather is in the name... Beautiful city we took a walk around the museums which were beautiful and some of the Islands Maori history and legends are amazing. The tram was an experience too worth trying once. As a massive Lord of the Rings fan a trip to Weta Cave is a must! It's free and the sculpture and details these guys put into the movie props is ridiculous. It is a must see!
