Ride the Cable car from Lambton Quay, downtown Wellington, up the hill. There you will find lovely views back over the city and harbour. Also the Botanical Gardens, Carter Observatory and the Cable Car Museum. And yes, there is a coffee shop for refreshments, as well as an enchanting parfumery, you can read about on my other review.

Living in Wellington is a matter of getting used to the steep hills and pockets of houses between them. The Cable Car has been used for many years to get up just one of these hills, and now has a lovely new modern terminal at the top, to keep you protected from the sometimes rough weather.
It's very cheap and worth the trip up even just for the views.
