Wellington, New Zealand


Located at the southwestern tip of North Island, New Zealand’s capital city derives its character and charm from the wooded hills that curve like a green amphitheater around Wellington’s harbor. Despite its steep hills, much of the city can be explored on foot, with stairways and walking paths climbing Wellington’s slopes. Bright red cable cars operate between Lambton Quay and Kelburn, offering magnificent views from the top. New Zealand’s versatile capital provides attractions ranging from historic manuscripts to an assortment of native plants and flowers and a collection of unusual instruments -- in short, something for everyone.
