Wellington is known for its spectacular location on the Southwestern-most point of the North Island. The city is surrounded by rugged sheer mountains, which makes for dramatic vistas all around. The vibrant green nature surrounding the culturally rich city on the sparkling bay is a popular stop for tourists.
One can’t escape nature in Wellington. The many lookout points in the city will give you a bird’s eye view of the bright blue harbor, described as the “jewel of Wellington.” Hike up to Mount Victoria or Mount Kaukau for two of the best views in New Zealand. For more wildlife, visit the Karori Wildlife Sanctuary or the Seal Colony at Red Rocks. For a less wild nature hike, the Botanic Gardens offer a relaxing and beautiful place to rest between sights.
Keep your memories of your Wellington vacation forever with a professional local photographer.
