The capital of New Zealand is a fantastic city to spend time in. It has bags of character and allure, with distinct districts going from the hills to the sea to downtown, and it also boasts many classy museums and landmarks.

The city is almost completely flanked by hills and has a substantial waterfront, with a buzzing downtown area in between. Downtown is home to colonial houses, interesting government buildings and has shopping and dining areas all around. The most interesting districts are located all around the downtown area and you can see it all on foot.

Sightseeing in Wellington

- Te Papa

New Zealand’s national museum, Te Papa Tongarewa is Maori for ‘container of treasures’ and is a must-visit while in Wellington. Spanning diverse themes such as art, history and Maori culture, the museum offers an in-depth look into the country’s vibrant past, with films, pictures and games blending into one superb interactive experience. Extensive and yet free, Te Papa is definitely no ordinary museum, and shouldn’t be saved for a rainy day.

- Cuba Street Mall

If you’re after something a little less conventional, hotfoot it to Cuba Street, home to an eclectic mix of quirky boutiques and creative curio shops. You’ll find plenty of independent stores here, from a number of quality vintage shops to several well-stocked secondhand bookstores, plus popular offerings such as handmade jewelry and international clothing labels. Cuba Street also offers an entertaining stroll on a sunny day, whether you’re looking to shop or not – look out for the famous Bucket Fountain, vibrant street art and the colorful cafes that dot the sidewalk. You can pick up a guide to Cuba Street at the Wellington i-SITE Visitor Centre.
