We popped in for a coffee here. It was so nice even on a yuck wellington day. I must visit in summer. There is even a little beach that you can swim form.

Cross the harbour by ferry, get a good coffee or meal, walk in the bush then go for a swim. Everything you need in a compact area.

We got the ferry from Queen's Wharf to Days Bay during our couple of days stay in Wellington. Fairly regular timetable across and back. Ferry Price a bit steep, I think - $11 per head each way. We met our friends in the Cafe opposite...More
