If you are interested in arts and culture, Wellington is the place for you! New Zealand’s cultural capital offers everything from high drama to lowdown funk. It’s home to the Royal New Zealand Ballet, the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra and the New Zealand Opera.
Every two years, Wellington also plays host to the vibrant and popular New Zealand International Arts Festival, which alternates with the insane but fabulous Cuba Street Carnival!
A strong vein of film production, theatre, visual and performance art runs through Wellington. There are galleries to suit every taste. From classical to Cuban, Elgar to electronica, music suffuses the atmosphere. World-class auditoriums from the Michael Fowler Centre to Victoria University of Wellington ensure a full programme of top quality listening.
Below you'll see Wellington Sights & Activities that can be booked online.
