The Windy City

Often referred to as “the coolest little capital in the world”, Wellington sits on the southwestern tip of New Zealand’s North Island. For such a small city, Wellington—or Windy Welly as it’s affectionately known—packs a huge reputation. With its fantastic nightlife and renowned entertainment district of Courtenay Place as well as an internationally recognized coffee culture, the city is both cosmopolitan and relaxed.

Browse the shops on chic Lambton Quay and then get a lay of the land by taking a ride on the iconic Kelburn cable car. Soaring high above the city, enjoy panoramic views before being dropped off at the doorstep of the Botanic Gardens. Pack a picnic to enjoy when you get there to take part in a favorite local pastime.

From 19th-century wooden cottages to streamlined art deco structures, Wellington is filled with sculptures, fountains, and art galleries; be sure to visit The Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa, the national museum and art gallery. Film buffs will want to tour the famous Oscar-winning Weta Cave—home to props, collectibles, and souvenirs of such movies as Lord of the Rings, Avatar, Man of Steel, and Narnia.
