You have to take a ride on the cable car when you are in Wellington. It is one of the most popular tourist attractions in the city, and it takes you from Lambton Quay up to the Botanical Gardens, with 3 stops in between. You will get great views of the city and harbour from the top. There is also a Cable Car Museum with free admission, open 9 AM to 5 PM every day, and a restaurant at the top.

A 1-way trip for adults costs NZ$1.80 and $1 for children/students. A return trip costs double. The cable car runs from 7 AM - 10 PM on Monday through Friday, and 8:30 AM to 10 PM on Saturday and Sunday. You can catch a car every 10 minutes during these times.

Address: 280 Lambton Quay
Directions: Cable Car Lane off Lambton Quay in Wellington's Central Business District.
