Rydges Wellington Airport
Attractions & Activities in Wellington
When you stay Rydges, you stay local, and there’s nothing quite like a truly local experience.
My local tip is one for all those beach addicts! There isn’t a better way to spend a sunny afternoon than walking along the sand at the majestic Lyall Bay. After soaking up the rays and hearing the waves splash against the shore..why not stop for a cleansing Hazy Pale Ale at ParrotDog brewery?

Head to the top of Courtney Place for a taste of 1920s’ splendour at the Embassy Theatre, or discover the incredible collection of Māori artefacts, natural treasures and historical displays at the Museum of New Zealand (Te Papa Tongarewa).

Get out among the kitesurfers and dog-owners to enjoy the fresh air at Lyall Bay Beach, Wellington’s most popular surf beach. Take in stunning views of Wellington on a South Coast Seal Safari; here, you can spot New Zealand’s native wildlife roaming against a backdrop of rugged coastlines and rolling hills.
Refine your swing at Miramar Golf Course, a championship links-style course created by Graham Marsh Golf Design. For a bit of variety, head to ASB Sports Centre for the chance to participate in a range of indoor sports and recreation activities.
