Wellington

In tune with both its history and its environment, Wellington invites you to discover New Zealand in different aspects.
The capital of New Zealand, Wellington, offers many cultural occupations and outdoor activities. After being brought into the city center by the Wellington Cable Car, which has its museum, the points of visit multiply. On the one hand, the Botanic Garden exhibits as many rare and exotic indoor plants as more or less ancient trees; on the other, Performances about the history of the New Zealand sky at the Space Place Observatory. Mount Victoria overlooks the city, to the delight of lovers of panoramic views. This small hill, located east of the center, is accessible by car or on foot for hiking fans. To immerse yourself in the city's history, the Te Papa Tongarewa Museum of New Zealand displays collections dedicated to New Zealand culture, and the Red Rocks Reserve offers rocky landscapes steeped in Maori history. Movie lovers are not left out with the Weta Workshop studio, which organizes guided tours around film objects such as The Lord of the Rings, the World of Narnia, or Avatar.
