    The Cable Cars run every 10 minutes between the Lambton Quay Terminus and the Kelburn Terminus at the top of the Botanic Gardens. It's a fun ride with a couple of tunnels and some lovely views. The view of Wellington from the top is beautiful. At the top there is a Cable Car Museum, public toilets, bus stop, Carter Observatory, a shuttle bus to Zealandia, and the start of the walking tracks through the Botanic Gardens. Children love this trip, particularly waving at the passengers in the other Cable Car as they pass each other at the mid-point of the track. It's around $3 or $4 each way.

    This is a real treat in Upper Hutt. I just went for a massage but got fully pampered as well. The owner, Annie, was delightful and very friendly. A nice place to relax with top notch facilities.

    It's a bit hidden away in Waikanae but is definitely worth seeking out if you're on the Kapiti Coast. It is a shame it isn't more well-known as it is an excellent place to see NZ native birds like keas and kakas up close, plus they have kiwis and tuataras. It is nicely laid out with grassy areas and seats.

    Not only the fastest public transport between Eastbourne and Wellington City, but a wonderful way to sight see the harbour, with comfortable seating indoors and out, and refreshments available. Some sailings also call in at Matiu Somes Island, a nature reserve in the middle of the harbour - well worth a visit.

    This is a really well run outfit with a good climbing wall. Suitable for all ages and skill levels. Reasonable rates and friendly staff.

    These burgers are delicious! And not badly priced. Yummy fresh ingredients and great flavour combos. The chips are chunky and come with home made tomato sauce. It's a great spot they've got on the corner of busy Cuba St, and I love the repurposed caravans.

    This is a good place to go if you don't have children, but it is also the most family friendly café/bar/restaurant in Wellington. They do nice coffee, yummy food, and have a good selection of beer and wine etc. It is a big place, but has lots of areas that give the feeling of being somewhere cosy and more intimate . The outside area is a fun place to hang out and at night it is full of lanterns and fairy lights. They have playgroups for young children on Tuesdays and Thursdays and offer free massages for the care-givers. They also have weekend puppet shows, face painting and sausage sizzle - all for free.

    Great wee day time cafe. Exceptional coffee and yummy food. It has a good local reputation so can be very busy over lunch.

    Perfectly located near the landing wharf for the East by West Ferry in Days Bay, the Cobar is a hidden gem. Deservedly award winning and arguably one of the best dining experiences in the entire Wellington region. The menu is very much seasonal, so full of surprises, but if in doubt, the locally caught fish of the day will never disappoint!

    Self titled 'mystic Mexican cuisine and tequila bar' it really is very tasty! Great location and relaxed atmosphere, best to make a reservation if going for dinner though. Daily specials like 2 for 1 small bites (shared plates) on Mondays keep it interesting and the pork chimichangas will leave you planning a return trip.

    The Hutt River is great for swimming

    The Hutt River runs alongside the Lower Hutt CBD. There are several walking tracks and swimming holes only a few minutes from the centre of town.

    Perfect location before heading North

    I found Upper Hutt the perfect place to stay before heading north up SH2. It's an hour out of Wellington so beat all the traffic, but can regroup and rest before hitting the Rimutaka hill.

    Peka Peka Beach

    Just north of Waikanae is Peka Peka beach. A wild west coast beach which stretches for miles. Can get good surf and there is ample driftwood for making fires and shelters. A true taste of New Zealand.

    Culture and food capital of New Zealand

    Wellington has been named the culture and food capital of New Zealand with it being crammed with more bars, cafés and restaurants per capita than New York! It is also home to the wearable arts show and many amazing artists call Wellington home.

    Mediterranean Climate

    Beacause of the location of Masterton in the Wairarapa valley has it's own micro climate. It has the same weather as the Mediterranean, which is unusual for this section of New Zealand.
