a few hours in wellington

One of Wellington’s oldest and most beautiful buildings on the waterfront – The Wellington Museum

What to do If you only have a few hours in Wellington. The good news is that there are plenty of things to see and do in New Zealand’s vibrant little capital. The What to do in Wellington team suggest you do not rush about but focus on 2-3 activities. Experiences that you will remember and perhaps make you want to return one day! Wellington is not like other big cities. It’s small and compact with a population of just 400,000. If you have been advised to drive straight through to catch the ferry to the south island we think you will be missing out.

Park your car as close to the TSB Arena for a stroll along the waterfront. Here you will have the opportunity to experience a number of top Wellington sightseeing highlights. You can start with either the Wellington or Te Papa Museum followed by a trip up the iconic Cable Car. We have also highlighted our personal best Wellington restaurants and cafes. At the end of the day, even if time is short you should definitely enjoy a coffee. Wellington prides itself on it’s baristas and the fact that there are many world class cafes for you to visit.
