What to do in Wellington

From culture to coffee, music to movie-making, the compact city of Wellington has very welcome surprises around every street-art-painted corner.


Eat and drink

Cafe culture and the great Kiwi tradition of going out for brunch is well established in the city.

Wellington is also a beer lover's dream, with plenty of bars serving the best local drops. Lonely Planet even named us 2017's best beer destination in New Zealand - cheers to that.
