Getting around Wellington is not only easy, it is extremely rewarding. The coolest little capital is very compact. The CBD is only two square kilometres in diameter which means you can walk from one side to the other in about twenty minutes if you have an appointment or in about three hours if you take your time to enjoy the sights, attractions and eateries. Did you know that Wellington has more cafés, bars and restaurants than New York City?

Getting Around WellingtonIt is a fabulous ‘walking’ city and while it is easy to explore independently, there are guided walks with Walk Wellington. Essential Wellington Walks happen at 10”00am daily, last around two hours and cost $20 for adults and $10 for children. There are also evening walks and both are wheelchair accessible. Here is a link.

Cycling is also a great way to get around Wellington and you will find ample bike racks for parking in the CBD.

Wellington public transport is also user-friendly and efficient whether it be bus, train or ferry. Here is a link to the Metlink Journey Planner. The famous Wellington Cable Car leaves from downtown to the leafy village-like suburb of Kelburn and to the best views over the city at the top where you will find the Wellington Botanic Garden and Cable Car Museum.

And for all your accommodation needs in the heart of Wellington, Rydges can look after all your accommodation needs.
