The Great Indoors

2 days | $

Wellington is the perfect winter getaway, and because Wellington’s unique culture and atmosphere aren’t weather dependent it delivers all year round! Explore Wellington's great indoors with this two day itinerary. 

Start your day with some local history at Wellington Museum, grab a bite to eat on your way to the Wellington i-SITE where you can pick up your pre-arranged 'There and Back Again' tour out to Weta Workshop. When you arrive back in the city, have a look around the shops and galleries on Cuba Street before heading to The Crab Shack on the waterfront for a tasty dinner before heading to Circa Theatre to catch a show.

Day two starts off at Te Papa, New Zealand's national museum, where you can find hours of entertainment for all ages. After a few hours exploring head to Civic Square and grab a bite to eat at Nikau Gallery Cafe in the City Gallery. Once you are re-engergised, take a look around City Gallery and check out their latest exhibitions, then head down Victoria Street and pop into Avid Gallery before refreshing for the evening. Have a relaxing dinner at one of Wellington's fabulous restaurants - one suggestion is Charley Noble.
