Great things to do in Wellington

Jump to last reply

I will have the best part of 3 days and evenings in Wellington and wonder whether you have any special suggestions of things to do or places to visit. I would like to visit Te Papa museum, walk up to Mount Victoria, take the cable car to the Botanical Gardens, stroll along Cuba Street, and walk along the harbour front. One thing I like to do on visiting a town I've never been to before is take a guided walk. Do you have a recommendation for this? If I decide to get out of town for a half day or so, is there anywhere that you would particularly recommend that is accessible by public transport (although could hire a car if necessary). I'm not overly interested in zoos or places where films were shot. I am interested in cooking and food, nice wine bars (especially outside ones), gardens, art and architecture. I have no doubt that I will easily fill my time there but if there is something which you'd particularly recommend, would love to hear from you. btw I will also be visiting Nelson and Marlborough Sounds during this trip, before Wellington. Thank you.
