Wellington

WELLINGTON

With the harbour lining the city and an absolute multitude of dining and cultural experiences, Wellington has a lot to offer visitors.

As the capital of New Zealand, Wellington is where you'll find our parliamentary buildings. But the city isn't all politics, with plenty of cultural delights to take in too, from theatre shows to the impressive collection of art and history gathered at the Museum of New Zealand, Te Papa Tongarewa. Wellington is a foodie's delight, with an abundance of cafés, bars and restaurants around every corner.
