Come with us and explore the Coolest Little Capital in the World! To kick things off we will drive up to the Wellington Botanic Gardens to see a great view of Wellington City and the Wellington Harbour and take the historic cable car down to Lambton Quay.
Next up, Zealandia! This is the world’s first full-fenced urban ecosanctuary with an extraordinary 500-year vision to restore a Wellington Valley’s forest and freshwater ecosystems as closely as possible to their pre-human state. The 225-hectare ecosanctuary is a groundbreaking conservation project that has reintroduced 18 species of native wildlife back into the area, 6 of which were previously absent from mainland New Zealand for over 100 years!
Following this, we will check out some awesome exhibitions at Te Papa – New Zealand’s National Museum, as well as take a stroll about the wonderful Wellington waterfront.
Weta Cave is next, which includes a guided tour behind the scenes at Weta Workshop where you can learn about the digital effects and creation of props used in the Lord of the Rings and Hobbit trilogies.
Finish off a great day with dinner at the famous Logan Brown, on Wellington’s vibrant and exciting Cuba Street.
