Best Souvenir Shops in Te Aro
Local Recommendations from our My Guide Wellington team
You can't leave Wellington without a proper Wellington Souvenir. Whether it's some original art, local crafts, or something from a 'Wellywood' movie set, you're sure to find something unique here.
Finding Souvenirs in Wellington will be a highlight of any visit. The museum shop at Te Papa is excellent, and any of the art galleries will provide some cultural food for thought. If you like fun, cheap souvenirs, Cuba Street or Courtenay Place will happily satisfy your needs for a few dollars. Miramar has some interesting shops around Park Road, which will be cheaper than anything in the CBD, and also has the famous Weta Cave, with lots of Lord Of The Rings movie memorabilia. Victoria and Willis Streets have lots of 'I Heart Wellington' T shirt places, and try Lambton Quay for some original Kiwi jewellery. You can get some great chocolate and fudge over at Hataitai, while Thorndon is the place to go for glassware and furniture.
