Start your hop-on hop-off minivan tour at the Wellington i-Site Visitor Centre. Your guide makes a brief photo stop at Mt Victoria, but you can disembark at any of the 11 stops to visit a site in more depth on your own.
View interactive exhibits on Maori culture at the Te Papa Tongarewa, a premier museum, or take in contemporary design at City Gallery Wellington; delve into Wellington’s maritime history at the award-winning Museum of Wellington; discover New Zealand wildlife at Zealandia or the Wellington Zoo; stroll Wellington Botanic Garden; or gaze up at the southern hemisphere in the Carter Observatory’s digital planetarium.
Your ticket is valid for the day of purchase (tickets purchased for the last departure of the day are also valid for the following day), and your driver can tell you when the next minivan will arrive to take you to the next location. If you’d like to check out great cafés, restaurants and shops, disembark at chic Courtenay Place, bohemian Cuba Precinct or the gorgeous waterfront around Oriental Bay. Wellington offers so much to explore, you may not want to leave.
