A tradition stretching back to the early 1900s and the only way some people have of getting to work. Great views over the harbour and the Botanic Gardens and Observatory there for you to visit also so well worth a trip.

Look in the free cable car museum for the history of this and rather than just looking at the view, walk the 500mts to kelburn for a coffee or beer before going back into the centre of Wellington.

Only $9 return per adult

Must see in Wellington New Zealand was the billing... they were right.
we were very impressed that in the middle of a busy city there is an outstanding Cable Car that takes folks to the top of the mountain, the botanical gardens and magic vistas

Although a normal form of everyday public transport for Wellingtonians it is a must if you are a visitor to Wellington. The whole thing is steeped in history and if you like to know the ins and outs of things as I do you will most likely find this attraction quite the experience. They've added a "disco light show" in the tunnels since I was there last which the kids especially get a kick out of. The views of Wellington from the top are nothing short of spectacular and there is a really nice little café (Cable top eatery)at the top with a good variety of light meals drinks and pastries.

After a nice walk to the top of the botanical garden we decided to experience the cable car going down. A great service and terrific views across the City and water.
