skip this and go elsewhere - nothing much to see here, apart from a view already partially blocked by growing trees that need pruning

Take the cable car up from the centre of town to the top. Check out the quaint cable car museum & view. Then make the time to walk back down to the edge of town through the Botanical Gardens. Lot's of different routes back taking in cacti, flowers, plants, bushes, citrus plants too. Nice pond which is off the beaten... More

Rode cable car up and toured gardens coming down. Nice hardens and staff is knowledgeable and friendly. Enjoyed coffee and snack in coffee shop. Gardens are large which allows you to avoid feeling crowded on busy days.

The variety of trees,shrubs and flowers was amazing. We took the walk downhill and absolutely loved it. We also found a quiet spot to sit and listen to the birds, pure magic in the sun. However, we were unable to get a cup of tea in the cafe as it closed at 4. A disappointing end to a lovely afternoon.

Take a picnic on a sunny day, good shoes for walking and a drink. Need to be fit as all walks are on the hill side. Wheelchair users can get around but will need a good strong helper for the steeper areas.

My wife and I had a limited amount of time to look around Wellington, but having decided to catch the Cable Car uphill, it seemed to make sense to have a leisurely stroll back down through the Gardens. The Gardens are beautifully laid out and the paths are well graded and in excellent condition. We saw only a small percentage... More

If you are interested in flora, this is a "must see" provided you visit while the flowers are in bloom

First I did not expect to visit this garden. But after I ride cable car to this garden, walking down through the garden became the alternative route to enjoy the city. As it is not so huge like in Perth, we decided to enjoy the garden and knew more about various collections of garden. In conclusion New Zealanders like to... More
