    The views along the way and from the top worth taking the ride despite short distance, also made the trip to the Botanic Garden easy when walking downhill.

What To Expect

The Wellington Cable Car has been running for over 100 years and has long been a cherished part of Wellington history for locals. Join visitors and locals alike aboard a short journey from the heart of Wellington CBD, through the Kelburn area and past the cosy terraced houses up towards the Kelburn Lookout. After taking in the stunning views of the city skyline and harbor at Te Whanganui-a-Tara, you can easily make your way to several other attractions, from the beautifully landscaped Botanic Gardens to the Space Place or Zealandia. Choose to take the Cable Car back down or take a scenic 40 minute stroll back down if you want to stretch your legs.

    redemption of ticket here takes some time, the ride itself is so-so. just one way up to experience it once will do.
  • CHEE SIONG 28 May 2018
    Actually, i should be giving No star at all! We bought 2 Adult One-Way tickets but was only given 1 2D QR code in the e-voucher, which we were pointed out (by the ticket counter lady) that this is usual. Assuming we were only given 1 ticket (QR code), we tried to redeem at least 1 ticket, just to realize we were not even able to redeem anything using the 2D QR code given, as the code given is not readable by their system. Terrible experience!

    Nothing much to see in Wellington. But spend few hour to travel Cable Car is good.
  • Jamie 26 Nov 2017
    Amazing view everywhere! it's so nice seeing the city

    I prepaid to avoid a line. They didn't accept this, so I had to wait in line AND pay a second time. I would rate zero, if possible (since it didn't work).

    The staff is friendly and helpful with my questions. The ride itself is short but scenic, while the light-up is definitely a plus. However, the peak station is a little bit dull that I see many people just walk around and get back to the cable car in minutes. While botanic garden should be attractive in day times, some information can be given to night visitors to make it attractive.

    If in Wellington for the weekend only it's worth finding the time to ride the cable car. Travel at night to see the LED light display in the tunnels.overall it was great, thanks

    A short ride to the top to get a 180 degree view of Wellington. You can buy a single trip or return. On a single trip there is a clearly marked path to walk back down.
