Wellington is this nation's capital of cool. Tucked in between two of New Zealand's finest wine regions - this windy city is the place to be. The streets are lined with cafes and restaurants selling world-class cuisine and bars serving up all your favourite tipples late into the night!
The city is best explored by foot. Stroll the waterfront promenade, kick back on one of their sandy beaches during the balmy summer months, score some Instagram snaps of the surrounding colourful timer houses or hop on the iconic red cable car that takes you for a day in the city's botanic gardens. If you're looking for something informational, Wellington is also home to the world-famous Te Pa Pa museum offering an interactive insight into New Zealand’s, and the world, history.
