If you want to go straight up a hill towards not much then this is for you. There is a couple of spots for some great photos and a cafe with a minimal selection of cabinet food but really - stick to the few photos.

This unusual funicular cable car is a great way to get up to the botanical gardens or the space place (observatory), or just go for the ride through tunnels of patterned colored lights interspersed with amazing veiws of Wellington and the waterfront.
Been up here a few times now when I have had friends/family visit Wellington. The view from the top is stunning, especially on a great day. Cafe, space place, cable car museum and botanical gardens all at the top. Well worth a visit & a...More
Kia Ora, thank you for your lovely review! Looks like you've made the most of your visits. Student ID are great for students that are studying in New Zealand, even lower rate!

Easy and enjoyable trip from the city up the hill. Lovely vista! Unexpectedly good (and free) cable car museum ... definitely worth 30 mins or so!! Easy walk back downhill back through the botanical gardens (a little steep in a couple parts) with sculptures, then...More

We went to the Cable car in May 2017. Friends in Auckland advised on taking it, at least on the way up which is what we did. We came back walking to see the scenery. The ride seem to have a couple of stops on...More
