You are here:
Wellington is a city full of treasures. A place to spoil yourself - whatever that may mean to you. The 'best little capital in the world' is a place to indulge in your love of art, culture, fashion or food. And it can all be done by foot - Wellington is a place to discover rather than navigate.
We have put together a sample itinerary below, follow it or make your own using our itinerary builder.
Start your day with breakfast and coffee at a funky downtown cafe, try Smith the Grocer, Finc or the Lido. Then spoil yourself with a little retail therapy, slip into nearby designer boutiques such as Robyn Mathieson and The Service Depot.
The harbour’s stunning views beckon, so take a stroll to the waterfront. Be inspired as you follow along the Writers Walk. Then it’s time to soak up the culture at Te Papa, or the Museum of Wellington.
More adventures await you on Cuba Street. Check out the Bucket Fountain and dig through a veritable treasure trove of stores like Madame Fancy Pants or Hunters and Collectors for that unique gift.
Entertainment is limitless at night. Whether you have a passion for live music, film, theatre, opera or ballet – you’ll be spoilt for choice. For a stylish cocktail, head to the Matterhorn or Hawthorn Lounge. For some live music, check out San Francisco Bath House or Mighty Mighty.
After a full day, you’ll be glad of the short walk back to your hotel. Relax and replenish, tomorrow’s treasures are just a sleep away.
