With a population of just under 400,000 inhabitants, Wellington is the second most populous area of New Zealand and acts as the nation’s capital. Wellington features some stunning scenery, surrounded, as it is, by hills and nicknamed ‘Harbour City’ due to its impressive harbour. It is a suitable destination for those seeking an active vacation, as there are plenty of areas to explore. Even if you are not interested in keeping active, Wellington has plenty to see and do, since it is at New Zealand’s cultural centre. Thus, whether you are inclined to walk or cycle through the countryside or sample the city’s rich heritage, the city will undoubtedly have something for you.
There are plenty of museums and cultural institutions where you can get a sense of the city’s cultural identity, including the national museum, Te Papa; the Museum of Wellington City & Sea; the City Gallery; the Parliament Buildings; the National Library of New Zealand; and the Old Government Buildings. Sculptures and statues are dotted around the city, including the Cenotaph just outside the Parliament Grounds and the Bucket Fountain in Cuba Mall, amongst others. There are also numerous theatres, such as the Embassy Theatre; Downstage Theatre; and Bats Theatre. Plus, there are notable festivals held throughout the year that include the Festival of the Arts; the Comedy Festival; and the Fringe Festival.
If you’re interested in something more adventurous, you may decide to explore Frank Kitts Park, where you can walk, climb walls and rent a jet ski. There are also a number of locations where you can get an excellent view of the city from, such as Mount Victoria; Mount Kaukau; Wrights Hill; Brooklyn Wind Turbine and Massey Memorial. Plus, you could take a cable car ride from Lambton Quay, as this will also provide you with an impressive view of the city and harbour.
