A must do in Wellington. Hop on the cable car, head up to the top and walk back down through the meticulously maintained botanical gardens. We enjoyed every minute of the walk in the lovely weather, that ended in the North side of town. Take time to detour through the very old cemetary

Work off all the food you've been eating in Welly and head up here. Great walks and bike rides. Good views over the city on one side, and airport on the other.

We had a beautiful day to enjoy the views all around the city this time. (Last time we were here Wellington was living up to its windy reputation and we felt exhilarated but rather windswept!). As visitors we had not realised how extensive this park is with tracks all over to explore. A must.

A little heads up, it's a steep walk up but it's definitely worth it. The view at the top was amazing and as it's not too far from the main touristy spots (we stopped off between the harbour and the zoo) it's worth a quick visit. We were probably spoilt by a warm and clear day (I hear it's usually... More
