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.
Immerse yourself in the tranquility of nature within the urban ecosanctuary of Zealandia. Spanning 225 hectares in Wellington, this is one of the world's largest conservation projects aimed to turn back time and the damage created by human settlement, restoring the land back to its flourishing native flora and fauna. Although an estimated 500 years are needed before it can be fully restored it to its original state, the sanctuary has already reintroduced six species of birds which have not been seen for the past 100 years.
The Te Papa or New Zealand's National Museum is a national treasure located in the heart of Wellington. Discover the rich history behind New Zealand's people, geography and culture through a number of curated exhibitions. In your one hour guided tour, you will be introduced to the highlights of the museum, and interesting stories of the significant collections will be shared. Choose an English language tour with multiple timeslots per day, or the Mandarin Chinese tour at 11:30am each day (except Sundays).
