Take the cable car up and pack a picnic on a beautiful day.. Or if you prefer there is a cafe at the top ( I did not try it though)

Lovely gardens. We walked down through gardens after going up cable car and enjoyed our day thoroughly. Definitely worth a visit.

Set on a hillside, these are gardens which afford a great view from the top as well as providing a wide variety of plants to enjoy. The "tourist route" is to go up in the cable car and come down the main path in the middle of the garden. That's very nice but detouring into some of the side paths will allow the visitor to see so much more and to get away from the crowds.

The funicular ride up to the gardens is charming, and the gardens - though they could use some kind of paper map for visitors - are also beautiful along with the view of Wellington. New visitors, though, have difficulty appreciating the "scale" of the walk back downtown, and tickets for the funicular are sold without providing enough knowledge for deciding on Return or One-way tickets! So 4 points for aesthetics, and 0 points for navigation!

Well not only was Sea Princess an amazing cruise but to started our day with the Wellington Cable car journey up the hill in Wellington was amazing. This ride just opened the city to our eyes, followed by the sensation aroma of the Fragrifert Parfumery at the top inside the Wellington Skyline. Even my husband was memorized by the story of the Fragrifert Family and how the technique of perfumery started.

This allowed me the opportunity to discover my very own fragrance with the master Francesco a Dutch guy in origins and he really topped my experience in Wellington. If your going make sure to visit him, he definitely knows his stuff and has a real nose for it. I could not be happier with my very own perfume, I feel just like Coco Chanel!
