Wellington – New Zealand

We arrive in Wellington by midday, after 12 days of traveling around New Zealand. We spend about two days visiting the most iconic places of Wellington.

The first place that we visited was the iSite, located in the center of the city this information center gave us all the info that we needed to discover the city and plan the following days.

Then we head to The Cable Car which is a funicular railway that goes between Lambton Quay, the main shopping street, and Kelburn, a suburb in the hills overlooking the central city, rising 120 m over a length of 612 m. On our way to The Cable Car, we pass The Botanical Gardens where we stopped to take a look at the impressive landscape.

We stay at a friend’s house, he advised us to visit some beautiful places around the city but one of those places was very special. It was The famous Weta Cave Shop is the hub of Weta Studio Tours in Miramar, Wellington.

In the morning we head to the Weta Cave where you can snap a selfie with our life-sized sculptures, wander through our mini-museum, and watch our exclusive documentary – it’s a movie lover’s paradise. And the best of all, entry is FREE.

Following we went to The Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa is the national museum and art gallery of New Zealand. It is branded and commonly known as Te Papa and Our Place; “Te Papa Tongarewa” is broadly translatable as “the place of treasures of this land”.

To finish our trip in Wellington we visited the Parliament building and the library. Parliament House in Wellington is the main building of the New Zealand Parliament Buildings. It contains the debating chamber, Speaker’s office, visitors’ center, and committee rooms.
