What to Explore

Lord of the Rings Tours

Have you ever watched any of the films from the Lord of the Rings trilogy and wished you could visit the locations that were used in filming?

Well, yearn no longer because some of these places are right on Wellington's doorstep.

Aside from the stunning natural scenery, Wellington has dedicated an entire museum to the trilogy. Weta Cave will allow you to come face-to-face with your favourite characters, browse props and displays and get a look at never-before-seen footage of the films. An absolute must for all LOTR fans!

Zealandia Wildlife Sanctuary

Get up close to some of the rarest creatures on the planet when you visit the award-winning eco-attraction, ZEALANDIA.

Located just minutes from downtown Wellington, Zealandia offers the ultimate Karori Sanctuary Experience. Go on a 1,000 year journey back through time and see exhibits of animals that once existed only in New Zealand.

Spot some of New Zealand's rarest birds, including the Little Spotted Kiwi and the Kaka, and native reptiles and amphibians like the Tuatara and Maud Island Frog.

Wellington Cable Car and Botanic Garden

Nestled on 26 pristinely landscaped hectares, the Wellington Botanic Garden boasts hidden pockets of exotic rainforest, glorious floral displays and unique specialist gardens.

One of the best ways to experience it is with a ride on the Wellington Cable Car. Running through the heart of the city to attractions like Victoria University, Carter Observatory, Planetarium and Mt Victoria, it is without a doubt the best way to soak up everything the city has to offer.
