Crisp weather, warm people

Lambton Quay and Willis Street are the main hubs of town. From here you can explore a mix of retail options or navigate your way to The Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa. Mount Victoria Lookout has captivating scenes across the city and harbour and when night falls, Wellington’s best nightclubs are found along Courtenay Place. Ferries travel between Wellington and Picton where the combination of crisp sea air and rich landscapes are simply magnificent.
