Wellington - "Absolutely Positively Wellington" - THE CAPITAL CITY OF NEW ZEALAND. A vibrant, modern city with a magnificent harbour and beautiful hills. Situated in the centre of New Zealand, on the southern tip of the North Island, it is a financial and transportation centre. Renown for its coffee culture, it also is home to the NZ Symphony Orchestra, "Te Papa" the brilliant National Museum of NZ, and the biennial International Festival of the Arts. Promoted by Lonely Planet as The Coolest Little Capital in the World!
Where do I start? If you like shopping, there are shops galore! From department stores, specialty shops and little boutiques. And the beauty of Wellington's CBD is that it's very compact and relatively flat.
Check out my tips for things to do. The Zoo, Zealandia (the Karori wildlife sanctuary), Te Papa (the National Museum), the cable car.

- Pros:Not too big, not too small.
- Cons:Can be a little windy at times!
- In a nutshell:Great place to live, great place to visit!
Wellington Zoo is small but has a good collection of animals to see and interact with, from lions to tigers to giraffes.... more travel advice
