Characterised by steep hills giving views of Wellington's spectacular harbour. The Wellington region forms the setting for New Zealand's cosmopolitan capital city, the geographical and political centre of New Zealand.

The city boasts many fine museums, libraries, art galleries, and theatres, and parks in the greenbelt around the central city, as well as dining, shopping and entertainment, and nightlife in the Courtenay Place area. New Zealand's only working cable car provides panoramic views.

Wellington's brightly coloured houses perched high up on the hills surrounding a stunning harbour, create a natural amphitheatre and play-ground for Wellingtonians and visitors alike.

Today Wellington is a vibrant, cosmopolitan, sophisticated city and not just the political capital. Wellington is the capital of nationhood. The city is jam packed with national treasures like the beautifully restored Parliament Buildings, the original Treaty of Waitangi at National Archives and its newest showpiece Te Papa, the new national museum of New Zealand.

It is also the undisputed cultural capital of New Zealand. The New Zealand Symphony Orchestra, Royal New Zealand Ballet and the National Opera all call Wellington home and our galleries are held in high regard both nationally and internationally.

Unquestionably, Wellington is the cafe capital with wall-to-wall cafes, bars and restaurants, their tables spilling out across bricked walkways while others are tucked into every corner imaginable. New Zealand's best nightlife is on Courtenay Place where only a reptile could be immune to the atmosphere.

The city is also the event capital with festivals throughout the year bringing energy and excitement to the streets. It is home to the country's largest cultural extravaganza, the New Zealand International Festival of the Arts, held every two years. Wellingtonians are fiercely proud of their city which is fast becoming one of the most talked about cities in the world.

Wellington - A creative, cosmopolitan city down under

The place was packed and the queue for a Saturday breakfast at the surf clubs’ Maranui Café in Lyall Bay, Wellington spread down the stairs. I felt lucky we had go there earlier and claimed a table looking out over the beach and to the sea. The smell of eggs benedict with wilted spinach on fresh made toast wafting past our nostrils. Ah, the Wellington breakfast, a classic. It mops up the ills of the night before and sets you up for the day. Read more...
