They say you can’t beat Wellington on a good day. But with so much culture, history and energy, everyday is a good day in New Zealand’s creative capital. From a strong coffee scene to a long list of must-eat restaurants, wandering from café to bistro and back again is a must. Pop into shops, encounter counter culture and see where history happens.
But if you’re after something a bit more curated, we’ve compiled some must-sees here. From Te Papa, to Courtenay Place, to Oriental Parade Beach, marvel at each slice of Welly life long enough to arrange artefacts in your mind. Then file that feeling into your archives forever.
