Attractive harbour with a waterfront path for walking, jogging or cycling. Some interesting looking restaurants as well as both the Wellington Museum and Te Papa Museum. Great way to see the best of Wellington.

Visited Wellington with my family during a cruise in the Tasman Sea. The entry through the bay and the city is just beautiful. Lots of shopping and sights here. A must see if visiting New Zealand.
