Discover the historical and scenic highlights of New Zealand's center of government and culture, known as the "Capital of Cool”. A picturesque drive along lovely Oriental Bay toward Mount Victoria offers a spectacular 360 view of Wellington and its well-protected harbor. Visit the Wellington Botanical Garden, established in the 1860s. Strolling through this wonderland of exotic and indigenous plants, you'll see rare specimens of begonias, heritage roses, and aromatic herbs. The lily pond is also worth noting because of its enormous water lilies and the carnivorous plants nearby.

History takes center stage as you drive down Bowen Street, home to New Zealand's Parliament, which has been meeting here since 1865. The most iconic building within this sprawling government complex is the Executive Wing, known as "The Beehive" for its distinctive shape. It provides quite an architectural contrast to the Parliament House, an Edwardian neo-classical building. You'll pass the contemporary Wellington Cathedral before arriving at Old Paul's, the city's former cathedral. Constructed entirely of native timbers, the interior is absolutely stunning, especially the wooden rafters and stained-glass windows. Although no longer a parish church, the cathedral remains a place of great spiritual significance.
