Wellington Tourism


Introduction
Welcome to Wellington - New Zealand's capital city and the country's leading town , trappings of a thriving metropolis - world-class facilities, inspired arts and culture, fine dining and a bejewelled harbour. Wellington also enjoys a well-earned reputation as New Zealand's arts and entertainment capital, home to the Museum of New Zealand (Te Papa), the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra and The Royal New Zealand Ballet.

Wellingtonians, like most New Zealanders, tend to have a passion for sport. Whether cheering on their beloved Hurricanes and Lions rugby teams at the Westpac Stadium, nipping out after work for a mountain-biking session in the Town Belt or kayaking on the picturesque harbour. Every five years North & South magazine awards Top Town status to New Zealand's number one city.

At the end of 2000 Wellington won this prize and was judged the best place to live, work and raise a family in New Zealand. The international reputation of Wellington's crowning jewel, Te Papa, continues to draw tourists, while Wellington's well established reputation as the arts and cultural capital and growing reputation as New Zealand's event capital is keeping Wellington humming.

Key Attractions of Wellington

Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa
Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa: Experience all of New Zealand in one building at this bold and innovative museum. Te Papa is New Zealand's national museum, where you can explore the great stories of this fascinating land and the people who live there. But this is no ordinary museum! Te Papa is recognised as a world leader in the new wave of innovative and interactive museum experiences, and has achieved an international reputation for excellence. Since opening in 1998, Te Papa has attracted well over 1 million visitors every year and been a huge success with international visitors as well as the local kiwis.

Parliament Buildings : Beehive, Parliamentary House & Library
A visit to the Capital City would not be complete without a visit to NZ's beautifully refurbished Parliament Buildings. Located in the historic suburb of Thorndon, the complex is made up of three architecturally distinctive buildings: the Edwardian neo-classical Parliament House, the Victorian Gothic Parliamentary Library and the unique 1970’s style Beehive building.

Wellington Botanic Gardens
Over 26 hectares of specialist gardens, native bush and lawn areas. Located in the garden are: the Education and Environment Centre in the aptly named Treehouse; the Lady Norwood Rose Garden, with over 106 formal beds; the Begonia House; the Bolton Street Memorial Park, where many of the city's pioneers are buried; the Carter Observatory, New Zealand's national astronomy centre; the Sundial of Human Involvement and a great adventure playground. Garden tours are available by prior booking or prior request.

The other attractions of Wellington include National Library (housing the most comprehensive collection of books in the country), and the Katherine Mansfield Memorials (the property where the famous author was born in 1888). In addition, a zoo and stunning views of the city from the top of Mt Victoria. Cuba Street has great shopping, Thorndon has historic sites of interest, Lambton Quay is the primary business street and Mt Victoria is the place to go for cheap accommodation and dining. The treetop walk at the Native Plant Museum is also worth the time.

Fun , Food and Entertainment
Wellington is renowned for its café culture - coffee is one thing Wellingtonians take very seriously! With several local roasting companies, and more than 300 Cafes and Restaurants choosing can also be a serious business.

From Malaysian to Mongolian, Pakistani to Pacific Rim, Wellington is a gastronomic delight After dinner, few cities have better nightlife - the colour and atmosphere enhanced by the intimacy of the city's heart. You can visit any establishment on foot and if you're having trouble staying awake in the small hours, there is of course the ever-present coffee.

Activities
Scores of walking and mountain-biking tracks around the city give a 360 degree perspective on this sparkling waterway. For those wanting a more rugged perspective, there are four-wheel drive or horseback tours at the head of the Harbour, overlooking Cook Strait. Anyone not wanting a stroll can jump on Wellinton City Sights or Kapiti and or a Wellington Rover timetabled tour where you can jump on and off at various hot spots around the city and the South Coast.

For animal and bird lovers there's the Wellington Zoo, where you can see New Zealand's national bird, the kiwi and our living dinosaur the tuatara and kaori wildlife scentury or just up the coast is the Kapiti Island Nature Reserve. The Red Rocks Seal Colony is just on the south coast with tours departing the city centre. Kids will love Capital E. This unique family venue in Civic Square presents fun and challenging exhibitions and events for children.
