Feeling arty?

1 day | $

It is easy to enjoy art in Wellington - outdoors and in! Start with the waterfront sculpture walk - there are 15 to seek out, ranging from Michael Tuffery's giant kina to Len Lye's water whirler.

If you would like to head indoors, the New Zealand Portrait Gallery features some of New Zealand's movers and shakers and Te Papa devotes its entire top floor to visual art.

Before you take the City to Sea bridge and have lunch in Civic Square, view the waka at Te Wharewaka o Pōneke and then book in with the educators at the City Gallery Wellington to use some of the gained inspiration in your own masterpiece!

If you've got more time pay a visit to Gordon Harris to pick up some art supplies.
