Wellington is the capital city of New Zealand. Located in more of less the centre of the country, it is a great base to explore North or South from. This town is steeped in history and houses the Government Buildings, most notably the Beehive.
New Zealands second largest city in terms of population, Wellington is home to the National Museum of New Zealand, Te Papa. There are dozens of local attractions from cable cars, waterfront diving boards, and more.
The city itself is flat and walkable, which is great for patronising the multitude of bars and cafes. Wellington is also where the Interislander Ferry departs from to reach the South Island. There are plenty of options for Wellington Accommodation. From CBD hotels to cottages on the outskirts of town.
