Wellington is New Zealand’s capital city and the home to Parliament and the Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa which tells the story of New Zealand’s history through bold and interactive exhibits. Wellington is compact, cultured and full of character. Nestled between the harbour and the hills, the vibrant downtown area is ideal for explorations on foot. You’ll discover an amazing range of cafes, art galleries, theatres, attractions and a lively nightlife.
