As New Zealand’s capital city, Wellington is a bustling harbour city. With countless cultural attractions, beautiful scenery and fine food, there’s really no wonder why Wellington is such a robust travel destination.
Although Wellington’s Downtown is quite compact, it certainly doesn’t miss the mark where attractions are involved. The mixture of architecture here makes Wellington truly unique – from 19th century cottages to Art Deco inspired buildings – this city has it all. If you’re really looking to immerse yourself in New Zealand’s culture, hire a car in Wellington and drive out to the southeast side of the city.
