Port Description

Wellington, New Zealand

Located at the southwestern tip of North Island, New Zealand���s capital city derives its character and charm from the wooded hills that curve like a green amphitheater around Wellington���s harbor. Despite its steep hills, much of the city can be explored on foot, with stairways and walking paths climbing Wellington���s slopes. Bright red cable cars operate between Lambton Quay and Kelburn, offering magnificent views from the top. New Zealand���s versatile capital provides attractions ranging from historic manuscripts to an assortment of native plants and flowers and a collection of unusual instruments -- in short, something for everyone.��
