What We Love About Wellington

Wellington serves as the capital and food capital of New Zealand. From brunch to after-dinner cocktails, you'll never run out of dining options here! Find your flavor in Wellington: visit Martinborough's sprawling vineyards and get a taste of New Zealand's best or why not feast on the city's expansive selection of seafood fresh from the harbor? On top of gastronomic adventures, Wellington is the famous filming site for the iconic Lord of the Rings trilogy! Journey to Weta Workshop and walk through the fantastical set as a mythical being of your choice. If communing with nature is what you're after, then the 225-hectare urban ecosanctuary called Zealandia is a must-visit haven for you!
