Wellington, New Zealand Vacation Rentals

Wellington Travel Guide

The capital of New Zealand is far from a big city. The North Island’s cultural hub only has about 420,000 people living there, but that doesn’t mean Wellington isn’t packed with activity. With access to the sea and surrounded by mountains, on a clear day Wellington could easily contend as one of the most attractive places in the world.

Things to Do in Wellington

Plenty of appeal for both the museum crowd as well as the restless outdoors type, Wellington will not quickly run out of things to do. Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa is a powerful place that tracks the history and heritage of the native tribes in New Zealand, including the Maori, a traditional tribe that now maintains a large population in Wellington. The Weta Cave is another popular museum as it displays special-effect tricks from movies as well as props from movies like “The Lord of the Rings”.

For those wanting to get outside, try a trek through Zealandia. Zealandia is a wildlife preserve with numerous trails for exploring and has become popular for the rare bird species that wander around the area.

Best Time to Visit Wellington
