Accommodation in Wellington

Welcome to New Zealand’s capital, located on the southwestern tip of North Island. Wellington is a bustling city filled with culture, history, technology, and more bars and restaurants per capita than New York City. Any traveller can find something to love in this waterfront town, whether they want to wine and dine themselves, get lost in museums, trek through natural parks, or take in a show.

Wellington offers warm summers and cool winters and rarely experiences extreme hot or cold. Rains and winds are common weather attributes, but rarely hold back the motivated traveller.

Wellington offers plenty for visitors to do and see. Concerts, plays, and comedy shows are on tap every night of the week. Those interested in the history of New Zealand, should stop by Te Para—the most visited museum in Australasia—which showcases New Zealand’s history, people, and art. Another box that every traveller must check is a ride on the iconic Wellington Cable Car. This meticulously restored car takes visitors from downtown Wellington to the Botanic Garden, where they can enjoy amazing views of the harbour and city.

Other excellent experiences to add to your travel list are visiting the Wellington Zoo, kayaking through the harbour, catching a glimpse of a kiwi at the Zealandia Sanctuary, and strolling through “Wellywood” which houses many of the post-production and special effects studios that brought movies like “The Hobbit” and “Avatar” to life.

When it’s time to relax, drop by one of the city’s many artsy cafes and breathe in the smell of freshly roasted coffee. The city is also known for its regional wines, acclaimed cultural cuisine, and excellent seafood. Your taste buds won’t want to leave.

The city offers many top-tier hotels for high flyers as well as more reasonably priced options, including Wellington family-friendly hotels and lodging many business travellers who visit the city.

State Highway 1 and State Highway 2 both run through Wellington, offering easy access to the city to any New Zealander driving in by car.
