Wellington New Zealand


Wellington New Zealand
Situated on the edge of a spectacular harbour, encircled by green, towering hills, Wellington is a stunning and compact city. Vibrant, exciting and cultured, New Zealand's capital combines the stimulation and sophistication of a big city with the charm of a village. With over 50 museums and galleries, three professional theatres and headquarters for the Royal New Zealand Ballet and New Zealand Symphony Orchestra, Wellington can truly lay claim to the title Arts and Cultural Capital. The greater Wellington region spreads from the bottom of the North Island up the west coast. Wellington is also named the windy city, so avoid the umbrella and wear a hat on a wet day!
