Autumn Our Wellington magazine out now

Everything you need to know about autumn in the capital is in our new edition of Our Wellington - Tō Tātou Pōneke, which is set to hit the streets this week.

As well as being delivered to letterboxes, the Wellington City Council quarterly magazine will also be available at selected Council venues and facilities across the city. 

Wellington is undergoing a once-in-a-generation transformation, with major infrastructure upgrades needed to make our city a better place to live, work, and play.

Covering the period from 1 April to 15 June 2023, this issue focuses on Wellington being a city in transition, as we work towards a more vibrant, resilient future.

It features updates on some of our major projects, including Te Matapihi Central Library and the Town Hall Redevelopment, as well as Tākina Wellington Convention and Exhibition Centre, which opens in June with its debut exhibition, Jurassic World by Brickman.

Read about how we are making it easier for people to bus and to get around the city using low- and zero-carbon modes of transport.

Inside Tō Tātou Pōneke, we have a handy guide of recycling dos and don’ts, along with suggestions for low-cost family-friendly activities.

We also share stories about a group of wāhine embracing Wellington waters and supporting our local rainbow communities by making visible challenges and triumphs for these communities, in ways that work for them.

Find out what's happening in the city this autumn, including exhibitions, sports games, and exciting events such as Wellington On a Plate.

The magazine also has updates on initiatives happening under the Pōneke Promise, our commitment to make our city a safer, more vibrant, welcoming place to be.

And, of course, it features details of our Mayor and Councillors, as well as upcoming Council, committee, and community board meetings.

Check out the magazine online (available as PDF and text version).
