Discover Wellington City
Panoramic views of the city from every hill top, one of kind museums plus an eco-sanctuary right on your doorstep. Why would you go anywhere else?
See & Do
The coolest little capital is full of activities.  Take a trip on the historic Wellington Cable Car, to take in the panoramic views over the city and harbour. Another top spot with amazing views is from  Mount Victoria.  If you up for a wee stroll, there are several trails in the town belt that will take you up to enjoy the 360 degree views. Its one of the best spots in the city to enjoy a sunrise or sunset.

The city is also full of museums and galleries.  Te Papa is unlike any museum you will have visited, with interactive and innovative exhibitions that are fun for all ages.  Then pop along to the City Gallery to enjoy some captivating art from around the world.

Zealandia eco-sanctuary is a short drive from the CBD.  Explore with a guide, where you can track down some of the most rarest wildlife including tuatara, giant weta, or if you are lucky on a night tour, you might see a rare little spotted kiwi.
Eat & Drink
World renowned coffee, an ever growing craft beer scene and new eateries popping up all the time, there’s something for everyone in the Wellington CBD.  

 If you are after a unique experience like no other check out Hillside in Thorndon.  A completely vegetarian restaurant that as a diner you never know what you will get.  Choose between a five or seven course tasting menu, with or without wine matches, every plate is jaw dropping beautiful.

Wellington is full of Asian cuisine, try Chow for 2-1 Mondays or Mr Gos where you can’t go past their Gun Bao.  Or maybe Italian cuisine more suits your fancy? Try the Carbonara with a glass of red wine at 1154 Pasteria or head into Newtown for Cicio Cacio where the menu is all written in Italian, make sure to save room for their panna cotta.
On the shoreline of Scorching Bay, along the Miramar Peninsula lies Scorch-O-Rama.   With fantastic breakfast and lunch options don’t miss the classic Peter Pancakes or the Avo Smash-let Bloomfield.  Enjoy their fantastic coffee, from the popular Wellington roasters Havana. Either sit inside the quirky cafe or opt to sit across the road from the cafe, right next to the sea.
At the top of Cuba Street is Fidel’s Cafe an iconic Wellington Eatery inspired by the 1950s Cuban revolution - its a shrine to Cuba.  Locals are drawn to its fantastic food and strong Cuban coffee.  It stays open late, and the relaxed vibe draws in cafe goers to try their extensive cabinet food or opt for something from their all day menu.
Close to town? Beach? And top views? Lola Stays is the ideal spot to  enjoy people watching in Oriental Bay over brunch, lunch or a drink in the late afternoon.  With several menu options, enjoy their fish tacos or one of their fantastic salads.  You’ll have to be quick in the summer as you’ll be fighting all the locals for a table in the sun.
