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 waves splash against the shore, why not stop for a cleansing Hazy Pale Ale at Parrotdog Brewery, a local Wellington landmark in itself?

Rydges Wellington Airport, the only hotel in New Zealand fully integrated into an international airport, is situated just a 20-minute drive from downtown Wellington.
Just minutes from the hotel, you can get out amongst 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 Links Golf Club, a championship links-style course created by Graham Marsh Golf Design. For a bit of variety, head to Ākau Tangi Sports Centre for the chance to participate in a range of indoor sports and recreation activities.
With so many things to do and see, you’ll be sure to have an unforgettable time in Wellington.
