Explore the attractions and small towns by the sea, just an hour north of Wellington


The Kapiti Coast, northwest of Wellington, has many beautiful and fascinating attractions.

We begin by visiting Battle Hill Farm, where we can enjoy a short walk in this real working historic farm. From here we get our first view of the Kapiti Coast, at Paekakariki Hill lookout. Below us is Paekakariki, where we'll stop for coffee at a cute local cafe. En route to Southward Car Museum we'll stop at the WWII US Marine Memorial.

Southward Car Museum holds a truly world class collection. There are some priceless cars here, although the museum isn't just for car lovers.

We'll have a BBQ lunch at The Salt & Wood Collective and if you want to, you can taste the beer at the adjoining North End Brewery.

In the afternoon we spend an hour or 2 visiting the rare native birds and walking the trails at Nga Manu bird sanctuary.

Our drive back to Wellington follows the beaches and coastline and we can stop for walks and/or photos along the way.
