#1 of 72 Sights & Landmarks in Wellington
We were lucky to view the different preserved altar cloths, which are used on different feast occasions - beautifully embroidered and years old.
Spending a few days in Wellington really made me appreciate what a wonderful city it is; and its architectural landmarks amazed me.

My wife and I recently visited Wellington, the capitol City of New Zealand, primarily with a view to visiting the World War I Exhibitions held at Te Papa Museum and at The National War Memorial.
An awesome memorial, very fitting, Quite a site in the city with plenty of space to ponder life, read a book or have a rest/picnic.

... Bush gardens are a top notch place for a little outdoor adventure, whilst spotting native birds, looking for eels in the stream and checking out some of the incredible views across Wellington from the highpoints.
This native garden comprises untouched bushland preserved by a farmer (Wilton) as well as structured gardens showcasing desert plants, ferns, etc established by the family Otari (Mr and Mrs buried on site).

A great wet day event which is full of history and sites in our parliament buildings.
It would have been wonderful to have more time to view other areas including the amazing artwork which is displayed around the Beehive (perhaps there is another tour for this?).

The cemetery is quite large, the 2nd largest in NZ so prepare to have those E-bikes or those walking boots as it is steep and hilly in some places but there are fantastic views and its worth spending some time here.
We were passing by this cemetery as we walked in Wellington and were enchanted by the sights we saw there.

Such a beautiful interesting Sea Bridge, lots of places to sit and enjoy the views, built with such care to make it look as if it has been there for hundreds of years, easy access for wheelchairs, well worth a visit
Great view overlooking the harbour looking down over the sheds that house the collage rowing club boats with a cafe/ restaurant next to it with bean bags on the lawn to sit enjoy your coffee/ tea meals etc .

Our 4 kids were taking in the sights, in awe of travelling by rail, excited at every stop and tunnel!
Look up and view the fine details of the ceilings and walls then look at the mosaic designs of the floors and appreciate the beautiful quality work.

The property is an oasis of calm in a surprising location just off busy roads, with impressive views out across Wellington and the harbour.
You are emailed full instructions about how to get into the grounds and a leaflet is available from the i-site in Wellington with a map from the bus stop to the entry gate.

We stopped at Mt Victoria in the morning on our tour with John from Capital Personalized Tours, but he saved the best for last because the was the best panoramic view of Wellington.
A historical heritage with great tunnels and views!

It's a very tranquil location with absolutely panoramic views over the Wellington Heads and Barrett's Reef where the Wahine foundered in 1969.
The memorial is within Ataturk Memorial Park, a beautiful site at the entrance of Wellington Bay.

The hike up the hill is a little tiring (we kept up a brisk pace) but the views at the top are amazing!
Finally the view from the Ahumairangi Hill Lookout is quite spectacular an gives you a perfect overview of the Wellington area.
