Named the “coolest little capital,” Wellington is a great city for walking and cycling around. What makes it special is that it has so much more to offer than you’d expect in a small city. Wellington boasts great art galleries, an incredible variety and proliferation of restaurants, bars, cafes and food trucks, all §beside some of the lushest nature and wildlife. Situated a very short drive from Wellington is picturesque Zealandia wildlife sanctuary with some of New Zealand’s rarest wildlife.
Wellington is also world-renowned for the World of Wearable Art event, the leading international design competition where artists push the boundaries of wearable art design, a must see every year around September.
