WITH YOUR MATES
Planning a long weekend in the capital? Excellent choice! You’ll find there’s heaps to do in Wellington. You’re never far from a world-class food, wine and beer experiences when you’re in the capital.
Mount Victoria Lookout
Get a panoramic view of city and harbour, and a great photo opportunity at the Mount Victoria Lookout. Watch the ferries sailing in through the harbour and aeroplanes taking off from Wellington Airport. You can drive all the way up, or walk through the town belt greenery. Grab some fish and chips and sit on the grass as the sun goes down and the lights come up.
Eatery and Bar
It seems there's always a new eatery or bar that's just opened up in Wellington. By day, lose yourself in the myriad of cafes, hipster eateries, quirky clothing boutiques and charming bookstores. By night, grab a cheap eat at the Night Market and sample a pint at one of Wellington's legendary craft beer bars, before stumbling upon an underground gig or experimental cocktail bar.
Waterfront / Oriental Bay
Wellington's waterfront is a beautiful scenic public space, dotted with cafes, parks, sculpture, bars and ice cream vendors. Join hundreds of Wellingtonians walking, jogging, skating, cycling, or crocodile biking. Stop by one of three markets on the weekend, then Oriental Bay beach to have a swim or just soak up the sun.
