I don't know about you but cable cars always make me feel like traveling back in time. (there is a lovely cable car in Budapest, Hungary as well).
The internal is truly original with wonderful old seats and atmosphere, it is over 11 years old!
This cable car ride did not disappoint, I stared at the top and continued with a steep descent to the Wellington CBD. There is the Cable Car museum at the top of the hill as well as the entrance to the Botanical Garden. It is worth making a day of walking the gardens then finishing up with a ride on the cable car. The ride has a few stops on the way then waits a bit in the middle when letting the car going in the opposite direction pass.
Great photo opportunities on the way!
Adults can buy a one way ticket for $4 or a return ticket for $7. I opted for one way as walked the gardens on the way back.More
