On the coast of a large harbour on the southern end of New Zealand’s North Island lies the most central, and capital city, Wellington.
Wellington, as capital city, has the Parliament buildings which are open to the public. New Zealand Parliament buildings consist of three buildings, the main one being Parliament House. There is also Bowen House and the building that everyone knows, the Executive wing- the ‘Beehive.’
Kids & Family
The big attraction that brings a large number of schools to Wellington is Te Papa – the National Museum. With a wide range of artifacts and items that represent New Zealand history and life, they also regularly feature exhibitions that cover a wide range of subjects.
The kids will also enjoy a ride on the famous Cable Car. At the top you may like to visit Zealandia, another popular attraction in Wellington. The natural ecosystem of New Zealand flora is a lovely spot in the middle of the city. Try a night tour here and you may see a kiwi!
Pop across Cook Strait and see Picton or the Abel Tasman National Park, and enjoy the beauty of the Queen Charlotte Sound as the Interislander sails up this flooded anicent river. Drive north to the Wairarapa for a rural journey through farmland or up the coast to Kapiti. Or perhaps meet the New Zealand fur seals that relax on our shores by joining a Seal Coast Safari.
