At the bottom of the world, on the edge of a sparkling harbour is Wellington, a little city with a big heart. Visit Wellington and discover why Lonely Planet dubbed it “the coolest little capital in the world”.

Surrounded by nature and fuelled by creative energy, Wellington is a compact city with a compelling mix of culture, history, nature and cuisine.

Thanks to the compact geography of New Zealand’s capital city, you can see and do a lot in a day. Wander through hidden laneways and discover world-class coffee and craft beer, experience Te Papa’s interactive museum magic, go behind the scenes at Weta Workshop to see props from Sir Peter Jackson’s award-winning Lord of the Ring trilogy and Hobbit movies, and still have time for shopping and dinner at one of Wellington’s fabulous eateries.

Just over an hour’s drive from Wellington is the wine-making region of the Wairarapa - blending country charm with luxury retreats, award-winning vineyards, stunning scenery and boutique shopping.
