Nestled between the fertile rural heartland of New Zealand’s North Island, and the bountiful waters of Cook Strait, this harbour city is the country’s capital.
Surrounded by nature and fuelled by creative energy, Wellington is a compact city with a powerful mix of culture, history, nature and cuisine. It encompasses a waterfront promenade, sandy beaches, a working harbour and colourful timber houses on surrounding hills. From Lambton Quay, the iconic red Wellington Cable Car heads to the Wellington Botanic Gardens. Strong winds through the Cook Strait give it the nickname “Windy Wellington.”
I love this city, it has an energy all of its own and the sometimes blustery windy days just add to this bustling energy!
