Wellington is a vibrant destination that rewards curious and tasteful travellers. Be inspired by the energy, flavour and creativity of New Zealand’s culinary and cultural capital on your next break away.
Loved for its dining culture, lively waterfront, art-filled streets, city markets, biking trails, innovative museums, nature sanctuaries and some of the best coffee and craft beer on the planet, Wellington is a perfect destination for foodies and cultural enthusiasts.
Just a short three hour flight from the east coast of Australia, the central city and region are compact and easily navigated.
From giant sculptures and Oscar-winning workshops, to extraordinary shows and festivals, Wellington is an energising and inspiring place to explore.
