Colours of Wellington - Private 4 Hour Morning Tour

Obsidian New Zealand

Select Option


By focussing on the colours of Wellington, we get to view the city through the eyes of an artist. We visit most of the major highlights of Wellington, but we aren't necessarily looking at what everybody else sees.

Discover the bright red Wellington Cable Car, the white marble of the Massey Memorial, the rainbow shades of the Wellington Botanic Gardens and Stained-Glass of Old Saint Paul's church. Visit the Byrd memorial (Aurora Australis mural) at the Mt Victoria lookout, and the New Zealand War memorial (Red stone of the Australian Memorial), the (multi-coloured) Bucket Fountain and street art of Cuba Street.

We'll enjoy morning tea/coffee at a local cafe, and maybe meet some colourful local characters too!
