Things to do in Wellington

If you are in Wellington for the first time then well, you will not be disappointed by this amazing, welcoming city simply because there are so many places to see, so many activities to do or things to try! Your Wellington vacation will offer you a lot of unique moments and experiences from visiting exquisite art galleries, exhibition centres and museums, to mesmerizing cathedral tours or sports tours.

Top Places to Visit & Things to Do in Wellington

If you want to learn more about the culture of this city and expand your current history knowledge then it is a good idea to pay a visit to the Te Papa Museum, one of the most popular and loved museums in this country.

Afterwards, you might want to take your kids to the Wellington Zoo in order to hand-feed a giraffe or play with a mob of meerkats and finally ride the historic Wellington Cable Car. Get a behind-the-scenes glimpse into the imagination and artistry behind some of the world’s most spectacular movies at the Weta Cave mini-museum, right there where the special effects wizardry happens.  Or put yourself in the picture with a The Lord of the Rings location tour.

Popular spots include a wander around the waterfront to Oriental Bay or travel back in time at the Zealandia sanctuary in Karori, which is just 10-minute drive from downtown Wellington.

You might think that Wellington has little food to offer, but it’s said to have more bars and restaurant per capita than New York City, and with rich farmland to the north and ocean’s bounty to the south, those restaurants are spectacularly good. There is also craft beer and coffee

Finding Accommodation

Wellington also offers you a lot of places to stay, depending on your budget and preferences. From close to beachfront to backpackers heaven with laundry and kitchenettes to 5-star luxury.

Travelling around Wellington

It is a good idea to spend a few days to explore the city by foot or by bike and be amazed by the numerous natural beauties and stunning buildings featuring amazing architectural designs which are surrounding you. For example, the Walk Wellington Tour is one of the most appreciated in this city and you definitely should try it out.

If you are a large group of travellers and this is the first time you are visiting New Zealand, it is highly recommended to take advantage of coach hire or mini bus services in order to get around Wellington comfortably and safely. When you factor in the convenience and the number of people you are ferrying around, it makes it well worth the cost compared to getting public transport services such as taxi rides for a group of people.
