Wellington is the capital of New Zealand and home to most of New Zealand’s government departments.
Wellington is known for its vibrant arts scene, world class café and restaurant culture, and active outdoor lifestyle.
A creative, cosmopolitan city, Wellington combines the sophistication of a capital with the warmth and personality of a village.
A visit to the capital must include spending time at Te Papa National Museum, Peter Jackson’s Weta Workshop, Parliament Buildings and the Beehive and for the environmentalist a half day (at least) at Zealandia Eco Sanctuary is a must.
Wellington is home to Victoria University, Weltec and Whitireia Institutes of Technology as well as a range of excellent quality schools and private colleges.
