Talking about art attractions, the must-sees include the City Gallery Wellington, where you can update yourself on New Zealand’s contemporary art, and Pataka, dedicated to indigenous arts.

For museums and historical buildings don’t miss the crown jewel – the Museum of New Zealand – Te Papa Tongarewa, a high-tech celebration of all things New Zealand, as well as the Museum of Wellington City and Sea. Culturally speaking author Katherine Mansfield’s birthplace is worth a visit by literary types to see what inspired her writing.

Wellington has a thriving nightlife around Courtenay Place – downtown Wellington – and being the capital it also has a Parliament District, both places that give Wellington its unique character. The best shopping areas are Lambton Quay and Capital Quay where you’ll find a good mix of boutiques, bookshops and local department stores.

To chill out and relax visit Wellington’s parks and gardens, of which there are several good ones. The Welling Botanic Garden is lush greenery, over one hundred years old that also houses the Carter Observatory where you can view the Southern Hemisphere. Fun attractions in Wellington include the Wellington Cable Car that gives those who take the ride an excellent view of the city. The kids will love Wellington Zoo, which specializes in various endangered species including the Malyan Sun Bear. You can also see the famous New Zealand national bird – the Kiwi.
