Lonely Planet has named Wellington as the #1 destination to see when in New Zealand., topping the likes of Queenstown and Auckland.
“Wellington is the crossing point between the North and South Islands, so travellers have long been passing through these parts,” the Lonely Planet guidebook says. “The likes of Te Papa and Zealandia now stop visitors in their tracks.”
Wellington is widely known as ‘the coolest little capital in the world.’
If you ask any Wellingtonian they will tell you this is true – our city really is the best place to be!
