Lambton Quay Vacations
Lambton Quay offers some interesting museums, exhibits and show venues within easy reach that allow visitors to really get a feel for the area. There are many excellent destinations to take the family for an afternoon such as the Cable Car Museum, the Museum of Wellington City and Sea and the New Zealand Film Archive. If you love everything to do with art, see the exhibits at the City Gallery Wellington. Go and see a live show at the St James Theatre, the Michael Fowler Centre and the Embassy Theatre.
There are many picturesque outdoor attractions here as well so make sure you enjoy the chance to get outdoors. Reconnect with nature at one of the area’s beaches, for example the Oriental Bay Beach. Have a break in one of the parks and gardens, which include the Botanic Gardens, Waitangi Park and the Frank Kitts Park.
Looming large on the local skyline is Westpac Stadium, headquarters of the Wellington Firebirds, Hurricanes and Wellington Pheonix. During cricket games, the stadium and surrounding streets turns into an ocean of fans wearing orange and yellow, the colors of local legends the Wellington Firebirds.
For a real taste of this fascinating part of the world, think about booking your accommodation at one of the area’s hotel or serviced apartment options. For a good night’s sleep check out the Travelodge Wellington, the James Cook Hotel Grand Chancellor, and the popular Trinity Hotel Wellington.
