Wellington stands on a central location at the southern tip of North Island. Featuring two aspects that are striking at once, Wellington embraces a rambling waterfront and mountainous landscapes with mighty peaks of the North Island. Highlights are:

Museum of New Zealand:

Te Papa Tongarewa, as it is known, is amongst the top 500 tourist destinations in the world. The precious historical possessions and documented chronicles that people often narrate in association with hidden treasures attract visitors to this museum. Enriched with ancient Maoris’ art, imported traditions and various other disciplines, Te Papa provides you with an insight on all this alongside an awe-inspiring riverside location.

Wellington Zoo:

Over half a thousand animals dwelling in one place, the Wellington Zoo is yet another must for tourists. Being a habitat as it is for New Zealand’s indigenous breeds and exotic species, now highly endangered, this zoo provides refuge to some of the most quirky and rare genes. Nevertheless, you will find veterinary surgeons keenly observing and taking care of the nitty-gritty of animals that inhabit the zoo. You will find yourself right up close with amazing creatures like He Tuku Aroha, Korora little blue penguins, sheep, kunekune pigs, bees, eels, Otego skinks, and kea.


The city’s setting on a stunning harbour gives beach lovers plenty of beaches and bays to choose from. Wellington's beaches are effortlessly serene. Oriental Bay, Scorching Bay, Days Bay & Eastbourne, Island Bay, Lyall Bay and Shelly Bay are luring sightseers in larger numbers since years. It is almost too easy to succumb to the sceneries and forget the rest of the world on your vacation here.

Mount Kaukau:

Speaking of heights, the most visible, Mount Kaukau, gives a heightened trekking experience followed by scenic views from different viewpoints. These mountains have caught the eyes of several photographers and cinematographers and Wellington has hosted many groundbreaking blockbusters including Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit.
