Discover the hidden gems of Wellington, our cool little Capital City.
We begin the tour with a drive up to Mount Victoria to get the "lie of the land" with spectacular views of the city and harbour below. Following the coastal road we'll soon arrive at Peter Jackson's film empire, the Weta Cave. The "Behind the Scenes" tour will give you the insight into how they make all the weaponry and props that bring these movies to life.
We lunch on the coast at the iconic Chocolate Fish cafe then continue the coastal drive around to the Red Rocks Reserve. On a clear day we get a great view of the South Island. Then it's back into town for a ride on the historic Wellington Cable Car.
A stroll down through the Botanical Gardens is followed by afternoon tea at the Lady Norwood Rose Gardens. our next stop is Parliament Buildings and the Beehive, one of Wellington's best-known landmarks.
Our last stop is one of Wellington's most special heritage sites, Old St Pauls. Its soaring arches constructed of local timbers lend the appearance of an upturned galleon.
