New Zealand's 'coolest little capital' is an amazing city with something for everyone.
Located in the centre of New Zealand, Wellington is the heart of the country. Not just the capital city but the capital of urban culture, quirky cafes, and unbeatable cuisine. A compact accessible city with natural beauty and a vibrant lifestyle.
Wellington, New Zealand's capital city, is located on the edge of a beautiful harbour and surrounded by rolling hills. This is a city you will want to spend time discovering, and its charms will draw you back time and time again. No two days are the same on Wellington harbour and the saying "four seasons in one day" is certainly true for this stunning destination.
Character houses perched on the hilltops all compete for glimpses of the spectacular harbour view, while locals and visitors alike make the most of the diverse waterfront activities; everything from markets to fabulous restaurants. The cafe scene bustles, the boutique shops beckon and in the evening you can tap your foot to the sound of live music in one of the many bars or just soak up the atmosphere by strolling through Courtenay Place.
Home to Parliament, the capital attracts people from all walks of life and has developed into a vibrant and dynamic city with a thriving creative community.
Just over three hours direct flying time from Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane, Wellington has much to offer international visitors. Transfer time from the airport to the city centre is just fifteen minutes.
Situated at the southern tip of the North Island, Wellington is the arrival and departure point for the interisland ferries and the gateway to the North and South Islands.
