Bring the best cafe in the world to the top of the Cable Car!

Petition details

Wellington’s Botanic Gardens and Cable Car are key tourist attractions. Unfortunately, visitors cannot enjoy the culinary delights and fabulous coffee offered elsewhere in the city due to a lack of options. We encourage Wellington City Council to invest in the servicing of these prime tourism attractions by supporting the establishment of a quality modern 'Wellington-style" cafe in the space formerly occupied by the Skyline Restaurant.

Background information

The Wellington Botanic Gardens Management Plan states "Surveys in recent years show that there is demand for a variety of refreshment outlets in the Wellington Botanic Garden...Given the variability of visitor numbers…the economic viability of any outlet additional to the Botanic Garden Café is a consideration." It's not unusual for Botanic Gardens with international standing to have multiple refreshment outlets, for example Sydney’s Botanic Gardens has six high quality refreshment options.
