Formerly the seat of New Zealand's government and is now used as Victoria University of Wellington's law faculty.
This beautiful 1876 building was formerly the seat of New Zealand's government and is now used as Victoria University of Wellington's law faculty.
It has a classic facade made of kauri, built to resemble an Italian stone palace and is the world's largest wooden office building.
It is easy to self-guide your way around the building to learn about its fascinating history and the complex restoration project.
Suitable for older students.
