Wellington

Wellington, as well as being our capital city, is also known as our cultural and entertainment hub. Wellington is a superb destination with so much to see and do. 

One of the best ways to see Wellington is to take a local tour. Food and cocktail tours available as well as sport fixtures, shows, theatre, museums, ride up the Wellington Cable Car, shopping and scenic cruises are a few ideas of things to do during your stay. 

All major attractions in Wellington are within a short walk of any central city hotel. Matiu / Somes Island is found in the centre of Wellington Harbour, this former animal quarantine and defence fort is now a nature reserve, well worth visiting. Ferry's are available from Queen's Wharf. 

Wellington International Airport has wide domestic connections and international flights from Australia. 

We start and finish our Central Heritage Tour in Wellington. 

A short drive or train journey north of Wellington you will find the Kapiti Coast. From Paraparaumu Beach take the Kapiti Island Nature Tour to Kapiti Island Nature Reserve. This is a superb day trip from Wellington, overnight stays on the island are available during the summer months (October - May).
