Wellington visitors who enjoy experiencing nature on foot may find that “New Zealand – The Great Walks: Includes Auckland and Wellington City Guides” by Alexander Stewart ( http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1873... ) is a good reading choice. This book is excellent for outdoor adventurers who are also urban-oriented and want to know the best of what to see by walking both within and outside of the city. Another terrific walking guide for travelers is “Walking Wellington: Twenty Three Walks of Discovery in and Around Wellington” by Kathy Ombler ( http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1877... ). That book is geared specifically towards Wellington travelers and is better than the other for readers who plan to stay only in that area and not to take day trips to other New Zealand locations.
Visitors interested in learning more about the history and people of the area, as opposed to reading travel guides, will find that the best bet for them is probably “Wellington: History, Heritage and Culture” by Gavin McLean ( http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1877... ).
