You’re a newcomer, setting up a new life in Wellington. Likely the first week here has been dominated by work. And house-hunting. And admin.
Come the weekend, it’s time to kick back. Take a break.
You even might be feeling a bit flat.
Wanting to get out the experience the lifestyle that attracted you here …but finding it hard to summon the energy to start researching yet again….
Let us help accelerate your local knowledge with these quintessentially Wellington outings – all within easy access of the CBD:
There's nowhere like Welly on a good day. Take the chance to relish the seaside vibe, just 10 minutes drive from the CBD, at the Chocolate Fish Café . Fantastic coffee, free scooters and ride-ons for the kids.
Take in a movie at arthouse cinema Lighthouse Cuba St. Architecturally designed, locally owned. Showing top independent films, and some brilliant blockbusters. There’s craft beer, coffee, ice-cream. What more could you ask for?
Experience the city that lives art and culture. Poetry and sculpture etched into the waterfront, literally. Take this walk with your eyes open!
Start connecting with the outdoors. Like to walk/run/mountain bike/birdwatch/volunteer for conservation projects? Just 16 minutes drive from the CBD is Makara Peak. A community of like-minded people waiting for you join in.
Check out what’s on at the Cake Tin (aka Westpac Stadium). Experience the Kiwi passion for rugby. Or New Zealand’s only professional football team playing a home game in front of their fanatical supporters. And be prepared for their unique goal celebration, regardless of weather…
