Wellington, Capital City

Our adventurers have now reached the nations capital of Wellington. This is a city noted for it's cafe culture, fine restaurants, the home of movie Director Peter Jackson and his Weta Workshop and the site of the modern and architecturally stunning 'Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa'

Wellington also has Zealandia, one of the optional Wellington activities on our New Zealand Vacations website. 

This is an impressive 2 square miles of protected natural forest where wildlife, especially native birds, can be found in their natural environment. 

Rebekah's reaction? - "my favorite part of the day was standing on the old dam at dusk listening to the birds at Zealandia" 

We've added a photo of one of the birds Rebekah might have seen and heard, the beautiful native Saddleback.
