Mount Victoria 5.0 stars
Mountain - #1 of 13
The trouble with hire cars is that they can sometimes be like a box of chocolates... sticky and horrible on the inside. The car I had hired struggled to get up Mount Victoria, the big hill in the centre of Wellington, but at least the drive was ... [more ]
Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa 5.0 stars
Museum, Gallery, Exhibition - #2 of 13
The ground shook violently, causing the table and everything on it to bounce and rattle haphazardly. The windows seemed to buckle, and it was impossible to stand. They say that during an earthquake, you should dive under a table or doorframe. I ... [more ]
Wellington Zoo 5.0 stars
Zoo, Aquarium - #3 of 13
I let my dodgy hire car coast freely down Mount Victoria along Alexandra Road, which brought me down into the suburb of Newtown. As well as some interesting houses (some painted in bright oranges and blues), Newtown is the home of Wellington ... [more ]
Wellington Airport 5.0 stars
Airport - #4 of 13
I thought I was going to die. Or even worse, I thought I was going to spill my little cup of tea. I have experienced some pretty wild flights in my life (I remember making an emergency landing once because of strange engine noises - probably ... [more ]
Karori Wildlife Sanctuary 5.0 stars
National Park, Nature Reserve - #5 of 13
When I look back on our time in Wellington, one of my few regrets is that we didn’t discover the Karori Wildlife Sanctuary earlier in our stay. Instead, it was only a couple of weeks before we left the city that we made the trip through Kelburn ... [more ]
Miramar Peninsula 5.0 stars
Natural Monument and Landmark - #6 of 13
Miramar Peninsula used to be an island until an earthquake threw up the land that now connects it to the mainland (that connecting piece of land is now where the airport is located). Breaker Bay Road led me down into what is the second most ... [more ]
Owhiro Bay 5.0 stars
Other Urban Landmark - #7 of 13
Bobbing up and down in the little boat was not too bad, especially after I had emptied my breakfast over the side. However, the strange mixture of cereal, peaches, and goodness knows what else ("I can't remember eating that!") attracted the fish, ... [more ]
Unity Books 5.0 stars
Shopping - #8 of 13
In my mind, the best shop for books about New Zealand and by New Zealand authors is Unity Books, located on Willis Street in Wellington, New Zealand's capital city. Opened in 1967, Unity Books is not a big bookstore, but it is highly respected ... [more ]
Wellington Movie 5.0 stars
Cinema - #9 of 13
The man with a beard waved vigorously at me from his window. He was standing at his kitchen sink, cup of tea (or maybe coffee) in his hand, gazing out over the clear blue ocean that lapped lazily on the shore beside his house. Who knows what ... [more ]
Busy Bees Bookstore 5.0 stars
Shopping - #10 of 13
I love the smell of secondhand book stores. It is an old smell, a lingering reminder of print and paper that hangs in the air like a literary blanket. It is a smell to drive most bookworms into a state of frenzy. The best secondhand book store I ... [more ]
Real Groovy Records 5.0 stars
Shopping - #11 of 13
Real Groovy Records has become the main outlet for CDs and music in New Zealand. Located at the top of Queen Street in Auckland and on Abel Smith Street in Wellington, the stores offer the country's biggest and best range of old and new music. ... [more ]
Karori Bird Sanctuary 5.0 stars
Zoo, Aquarium - #12 of 13
The Karori Bird Sanctuary is 252 hectares of native New Zealand bush right in the middle of Wellington. Located in the suburb of Karori, the bird sanctuary has been created on land that was once occupied by the city's water reservoir - until ... [more ]
Borders Book and Music Store 5.0 stars
Shopping - #13 of 13
Last time I visited New Zealand's capital city of Wellington, I was most surprised and somewhat excited to find a brand new Borders bookstore had sprung up on the main shopping street of Lambton Quay. The only other Borders that I know of in New ... [more ]
