Situated on the cliff above Oriental Bay, historic St Gerard's is a Wellington landmark.
Take a tour of these historic buildings which overlook Wellington harbour. The tour begins at the door of the Church, with its beautiful stained glass windows, before proceeding to the Monastery which provides a glimpse into a unique lifestyle, which includes lay people as well as priests, from all over the world. There are ample opportunities for photographs both within the buildings and of the spectacular views over Wellington.
The tours are free and light refreshments are provided.
Limited car parking is available on the car deck at the Monastery. Otherwise proceed up Moeller Street to Bay View Terrace, where free parking is available on the left hand side of the road.
