    Waterfront Walkway

    Queens Wharf, Wellington, WGN 6001 New Zealand
    11 reviews

    Squarely on the beaten path, the Waterfront Walkway is nevertheless a must on a summer's day in Wellington. Strolling along the water and gazing at the ocean is best capped off by a visit to the wharf where you can witness the huge catches of the 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.

    Parliament Buildings

    Ballantrae Place, Thorndon, Wellington, New Zealand

    Wellington is so hip and laid back it's easy to forget that it is also the capital city! Even the houses of parliament are not your average looking government building.

    Interislander Ferry Terminal

    New Zealand
    4 reviews

    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!
