Waterfront Walkway

Queens Wharf, Wellington, WGN 6001 New Zealand
11 reviews

Food, benches in the sunshine, and little shops to entertain the masses. This seems to be the hub of activity for Wellington - where workabees come on their lunch breaks, families come for togetherness time, and students come to study. It's the place to be on a warm spring or summer day.

    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... =)

    Famous because of the red cable car that whisks you up the mountain to visit, these beautiful gardens are right in the middle of the city and a great way to get some green into your summer's day.

    Pulsing with a youthful vibe Cuba Street is the place to be in Wellington. It offers a delightful blend of New Zealand charm and beauty with hip local culture, music and performers. It's a nice place to just stroll up and down checking out the shops and grabbing a bite to eat.

    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.

    Slow Boat Records

    There is something a bit rugged and grungy about Wellington that I really liked. Places like Slow Boat Records really just added to the cities youthful and hip appeal. They had more records in the shop than I've seen anywhere in quite sometime. Nice place to stop in and get the local feel.
