Here’s what we did in Wellington, NZ!
Travel Dates: 10 Nov 2014
Transportation: Public bus available, we walked!
From the cruise ship, it was about a 20 minute walk into downtown (very easy). We went to the Te Papa museum (free entry) first. It’s the National Museum of New Zealand. Very good exhibits. Then stop by Cuba Street (since it’s nearby) for some Bohemian shops and cafes. Continue on to the Historic Wellington Cable Car (I think it was $7). We took the cable car up to the Cable Car Museum (free) and there were great views of the city. There’s also a zoo at the top, but we didn’t go there. Back on the main street, there’s plenty of shopping. The city is beautiful and easy to walk!
Other options are the hop-on/hop-off Wellington sights tour, the seal coast safari, or a Lord of the Rings tour.
