The Area: Wellington
Wellington, the capital of New Zealand, sits near the North Island’s southernmost point on the Cook Strait. A compact city, it encompasses a waterfront promenade, sandy beaches, a working harbour and colourful timber houses on surrounding hills. From Lambton Quay, the iconic red Wellington Cable Car heads to the Wellington Botanic Gardens. Strong winds through the Cook Strait give it the nickname “Windy Wellington.”
Wellington is the major population centre of the southern North Island and is also referred to as New Zealand’s cultural capital. The city is home to the National Archives, the National Library, the Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa, numerous theatres, and two universities. It has a lively urban culture, with many cafés, restaurants, and performance venues. Popular tourist attractions include Museum of Wellington City & Sea, Wellington Zoo, Zealandia and Wellington Cable Car.
The city is home to Te Papa (the Museum of New Zealand), The Great War Exhibition, the National Library of New Zealand and the Wellington City Art Gallery. High-profile events and cultural celebrations organised in the city include the biennial New Zealand International Arts Festival, biennial Wellington Jazz Festival and major events such as Brancott Estate World of Wearable Art, Cuba Street Carnival and New Zealand International Comedy Festival.
