Wellington is New Zealand's capital city, and is easily the country's most happening place. Stretched around its waterfront and sheltered by houses clinging to lush green hills, Wellington has a unique inner-city focus. With most of the population either living in town or commuting in from the outer suburbs, a wide range of people work and live together in this bustling and energetic metropolitan hub.

A pedestrian city, the best way to truly discover the essence of Wellington is on foot. Malls and side alleys connect its streets, cafes spill from refurbished Victorian buildings, the waterfront inspires new and exciting public spaces, and eclectic street art is scattered throughout.

In the capital, style and eclecticism are the norm, not the exception. Some of the country's best art galleries, restaurants, microbreweries, and coffee outfits make their home here, and fashion is diverse; from the high fashion of Lambton Quay to the op-shops of Cuba Mall. Visitors and locals alike are drawn by the government and business districts, the bohemian Cuba quarter or the entertainment of Courtenay Place.

Spoilt for choice, Wellington actually has more eating places per head of population than New York! You could dine somewhere different every day for over a year. Chill in the kerbside cafes, or dine in style at any number of restaurants featuring cuisine from around the world.

Wellington is home to the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra, the Royal New Zealand Ballet Company, the Wellington City Opera, multiple cinema complexes and four professional theatres. Needless to say there is always a rich array of top class entertainment to enjoy.

While an animated city lifestyle and gorgeous harbour attract people by day, Wellington has a renowned nightlife. Restaurants and bars sprawl out onto the streets, and whether you like the high pace of the clubs, the low key pubs or to experience local live music, there is always something going on.

As the capital city, Wellington acts as the country's cultural, administrative and political hub. It is the storehouse for the nation's historic, cultural and artistic treasures, and the locale for the country's halls of power. Visit places of national importance as well as those of historical significance to Wellington.

Wellington's unique history accounts for the city's energetic and diverse contemporary character. Wellington was established by an enterprising, innovative and supportive community, and this attitude runs very strongly through the city's atmosphere today. World class hospitality and a bright and a vibrant local population make this a wonderful city to both live in and visit.
