View was nice from the top. The cable car trip was quite short which we didn't really expect. When it stopped, we thought it was one of the stops. Even those tourists standing around me were surprised that was the final station. The best part was walking down from the hill back to the city through the botanic garden.

What to expect

The Wellington Cable Car has been running for over 100 years and has long been a cherished parting 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.
