Wellington is the capital city of New Zealand and the centre of New Zealand’s arts and cultural scene. We’ll give you a guided tour of the city sights including a trip to the top of Mt. Victoria where you’ll see stunning views of this beautiful city nestled between the harbour and the hills on the southern tip of the North Island. Enjoy some ‘free time’ to discover Wellington for yourself. Maybe check out the city’s downtown cafés and boutiques or take a look at some of the architecture throughout the city including the Edwardian neo-classical Parliament House. Your Wellington accommodation is centrally located so you’ll be able to get around hassle-free.
Wellington’s most impressive attraction is Te Papa, the Museum of New Zealand. You’ll visit the museum and have time to explore the many exhibitions for yourself. This is a world class museum with interactive displays of New Zealand’s geology and environment, art, history and culture. Make sure you see the amazing collection of Maori artefacts during your visit.
