    Wellington's famous red cable car. It takes you from the city up to the botanic gardens. From the top you can see a fantastic view of the city! The cable car ride was definitely memorable!

    Nothing like the old charm of a cable car combined with amazing views of Wellington. Cable Car driver was super friendly and told us a lot about history and other little known facts. Don't forget your camera!

    The garden itself is not too big but give you a nice overview of Wellington from the top. The cable car is pretty short from my other experience... =)

Description:

All aboard the Wellington Cable Car, the relentless red rattler! Proving a successful project since its opening in 1902, the cable car ride is a popular means of transportation for Victoria University students and a unique, beautiful highlight of the Wellington experience. The main attraction is the panoramic sightseeing platform on the journey up the hill from Lambton Quay to the Botanic Gardens, Cable Car Museum and Kelburn Village. The flaming-red tram provides you a picturesque, increasingly wonderful view of Wellington and the harbor below. To accommodate the steep slope, the tram interior is staggered rather than level. When walking through the car, you feel as if you are climbing a staircase. Even if you have traveled on other trams, it is highly unlikely that you have taken a trip on a cable car like this one.
