  Up and down the hill - Wellington Cable Car
by Bernd_L

From downtown Wellington you can use the cable car to go up the hill to the Botanical Garden. On its way the cable car offers a splendid view over the city and the bay.

The cable car is not only a means of transportation but also a tourist attraction. You shouldn't miss a trip with it.

The downtown station is on Lambton Quai, Wellingtons main shopping street. The Cable Car is used by nearly a million people each year. In the mornings and evenings, it is used by commuters travelling between Kelburn and the city. At other times of the day, it is used by people travelling between the city and the Wellington Botanic Garden, or by students attending Victoria University.
