Wellington Cable Car

Wellington’s beloved Cable Car, and the newly renovated Kelburn Terminus, can be hired for functions and weddings.

The Kelburn Terminus light up with lights inside with a dusky background.

Hire out the terminal and the Cable Car for drinks reception, cocktail functions and even wedding ceremonies with a difference!

The terminal was upgraded in 2014 to include an indoor viewing platform with a fully covered roof. The ceiling-to-floor windows offer guests stunning views of Wellington city and harbour, day or night.

Please note, the venue does not offer sit-down or a la carte events.
