Best Things To Do in Wellington City
Local Recommendations from our My Guide Wellington team
There are so many things to do in Wellington. Culture, coffee, film, food, heritage, the wonders of nature, sightseeing, museums and some thrilling family attractions. Our Wellington 'Things to Do' guide covers all budgets. Being the centre of the Kiwi film industry, 'Wellywood' has lots of great movie locations to go and visit (check out the organised guided tours).
Culture vultures will be spoiled for choice with all the art galleries, museums and exhibitions on in town. Water and land activities are everywhere, and there are lots of great gardens and parks. Hop on board the Wellington Cable Car, stroll along the Harbourside, or check out Wellington Zoo, Zealandia and Space Place at Carter Observatory at the top of the Botanic Gardens. You can be as active or passive as you like here. Wellington is such a welcoming, laid back place, don't be afraid to just go with the flow.
