Wellington is filled with plenty to delight the senses.
We love a good arts festival in Wellington, and our compact city centre means they easily bring a vibrant energy to the streets.
Just a short three hour flight away, it's easy to pop over and discover it all for yourself.
You'll love it here. People just do.
Join us in the capital for New Zealand Festival, the largest celebration of cutting-edge arts and culture.
Garments are transformed on stage in this theatrical extravaganza combining fashion, dance, theatre and art.
A compact central city means things are often walking distance. From your downtown hotel, it's easy to wander across the street to some of the best restaurants in the city for dinner before heading to a show, concert or performance. A lively waterfront, city markets, and some of the best coffee and craft beer on the planet are never far either.
Below you'll find a few quick facts about Wellington and some tools to help plan your visit. Hope to see you soon.
