    Te Papa Tongarewa

    0.65 mi from Oriental Bay
    18 reviews

    Te Papa (Wellington Museum) is one cool museum. Filled with marine and biology exhibits, interactive rooms like a live movable map, and an earthquake simulator, it's the perfect place for an afternoon indoors. Add the Middle Earth vibe and Lord of the Rings/Hobbit memorabilia, and how can you get any cooler? Oh yeah, it's free.

    A great hiking spot offering beautiful 360 degree views of the city and bay. They also filmed some scenes from Lord of the Rings here, which the nerd in me loves.

    This company does a few "Lord of the Rings" Tours, but I went with a group of writers on one of their newer tours (not yet detailed on their website): The Seal Colony Wind Farm Tour. The 62 wind turbines at the Terawhiti Wind Farm were very impressive. The seal colony had apparently moved on because we saw only two ...

    What I loved most about the gardens would have to be their location! The gardens themselves were beautiful but what really made them memorable was the cable car ride up to them! And at the top you can look out over the entire city! Wonderful experience!

    Cuba Street

    When in Wellington Cuba Street is a must! It's very long and has heaps of different shops to go looking in, and also a few different restaurants. You are bound to find something to your taste along there. Also on the weekends there are people who sell paintings, do tricks or anything really. Make sure you check it out!

    Interislander Ferry was quite a ride! You have 3 hours (92km) to do whatever you want - watch a movie, read a book, grab a drink and bit to eat at the bar or enjoy breathtaking views of Cook's Strait. It is probably one of the most beautiful ferry rides in the world!

    Excellent summer beach, watch the ferries go by. Local Cafe is a must-do, with occasional chances to spot actors involved with Miramar's Weta Studios at Camperdown Rd and Peter Jackson's Park Rd Post.
