Wellington may be a small city, but it is full of superlatives. It is the southernmost capital and has been called the ‘coolest little capital in the world.’ It presents to you all the best New Zealand has to offer within easy reach - mountains and hills, wineries and beaches, bays and islands. It is also vibrant and modern, with plenty of art galleries, cultural venues, and gourmet restaurants nestled between the hills of Makara and the spectacular Wellington harbor. Don’t forget to take the cable car from Lambton Quay up to the Botanic Gardens and enjoy the magnificent view over the city.
