Wellington City

The vibrant capital city of Wellington is a short 10-minute helicopter flight away, or 90 minute road transfer.

Wellington is often described as the ‘Coolest Little Capital in the World’. A bay-side, walking city with a big personality. The city has a wonderful vibrant restaurant scene, and is known for its relaxed coffee culture.

 

The waterfront is home to the national museum of New Zealand – TE PAPA. This is a great way to spend a few hours, or more, and get a deeper understanding of New Zealand's history, social culture, and art scene. A favourite experience is to pre-arrange a private tour behind the scenes and be guided through the stories of what the museum vaults hold.

 

Spend a few hours with the talented team at WETA FILMS. Weta films are the special-effects wizards who have been recognized with a number of film industry awards for their work on projects such as; Lord of The Rings, The Hobbit, The Adventures of Tintin, Avatar, Thunderbirds, King Kong, and many many more. Take a guided tour of their workshop, and meet some of the artists who can show you some of their specific make-up, prosthetic talents that have made Weta Films the go-to company for special effects.

 

Wharekauhau can arrange a driver and guide to show you this wonderful city. Please inquire via [email protected] to get a specific quote on how you would like to spend your ‘Wellington-Day’
