Molesworth Street, Pipitea, Wellington
A visit to New Zealand's capital city would not be complete without a visit to the beautifully refurbished Parliament Buildings. Consisting of three architecturally distinctive buildings, there's the Edwardian neo-classical Parliament House, the Victorian Gothic Parliamentary Library and the unique 1970s-style Beehive building.
Free guided tours of Parliament are available each day but need to be booked in advance. You can also book to dine at Bellamy's by Logan Brown, previously exclusively for parliamentarians, this fine dining restaurant at Parliament is now open to the public.
Have a fish and chip feast
5 Majoribanks Street, Mount Victoria, Wellington
Mt Vic Chippery's Weekday Express Lunch is excellent value: for $15 you'll get a piece of beer-battered, crumbed or gluten-free battered market fish, crinkle-cut fries, slaw, sauce and a soft-drink. Go have a fish and chip picnic at nearby Oriental Bay.

One of Wellington's most-loved restaurants, Chow serves up fresh, contemporary takes on Asian eats along with a line-up of delicious cocktails in a cool-casual setting. Their delicious cocktails are all under $20 - our favourite is the rosebud.
