Wellington - The Coolest Little Capital!

The Centre Stage region of New Zealand offers the very best of an extraordinary land – from arts and culture, Māori​ heritage and natural wonders, to wine and food, shopping and rural retreats. 

Located at the bottom of New Zealand’s North Island, Wellington is the capital city of New Zealand and home to the seat of Parliament. Set on the edge of a stunning harbour surrounded by rolling green hills, Wellington paints a picture of postcard perfection & is a city waiting to be explored!

Wellington has a multitude of activities to entertain visitors, choose from ballet to theatre, opera to the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra, or contemporary art exhibitions at the Wellington City Gallery.

Taking pride of place on the waterfront is the spectacular Te Papa Museum, which showcases the country’s natural environment, Māori culture & colonial history. Gallipoli: The Scale of Our War is one of the ground-breaking exhibitions you’ll explore while visiting Te Papa. This exhibition shares the stories of eight New Zealanders who found themselves in extraordinary circumstances during the Gallipoli campaign of World War I.

Visit Zealandia, just minutes from the central city, a unique eco-attraction where New Zealand’s incredible natural history & conservation movement are brought to life with a state-of-the-art indoor exhibition and 225ha eco-sanctuary.

One of the best ways to see Wellington city is on foot. Take an easy stroll, and you’ll find national treasures, artistic flair, gastronomic delights, eclectic shopping sensations and scenic beauty.
