Wellington Cable Car Tours

154 Reviews
Taking a ride on Wellington’s little red cable car is an essential experience.

The cable car has been operating since 1902, providing panoramic views over Wellington on its 5-minute chug up the hill to Kelburn village and the botanic garden.

At the top, visit the Cable Car Museum to learn more about this historic attraction, and get out your camera to snap must-have photos of those harbor views. Nearby, the Carter Observatory explains the mysteries of the southern night sky.

Practical Info

The Wellington cable car runs every 10 minutes from Lambton Quay by the waterfront to the top entrance of the Wellington Botanic Garden.

If you’d like to walk back to town, it’s an interesting and pleasant 35-minute downhill stroll.
