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.
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.
Beginning over one hundred million years ago, make the most out of your trip to Wellington by joining your guide on a journey through New Zealand's rich history and cultures. Hear stories of our tenacious wildlife, the resilience of Māori, and artistic interpretations of life in the South Pacific. After the tour, you have the freedom to keep exploring the rest of the collections that range from art and design to Maori culture and New Zealand's natural environment, or choose to explore Gallipoli: The Scale of Our War with the peace and stillness this subject matter deserves by entering the exhibit half an hour before the public.
