Up, up, and away

1 day | $

Start the day with a trip on Wellington’s iconic Cable Car and then take in the view from the viewing platform at the top. What can you see?

Then pop into Wellington Cable Car Museum to sit on its beautifully-restored heritage Cable Car. Maybe Granny rode on it back in the day?

From there, head to Carter Observatory to enjoy one of their special pre-schooler programmes – a song-centered session in their digital planetarium and learning room will teach pre-schoolers all about the ‘Family of the Sun’ (charges apply).

Walk back via the Botanic Garden and enjoy heaps of opportunities to run around, picnic and play.
