What’s On In Wellington
Events in Wellington
Experience art, culture, cafes and nature when visiting Wellington, the coolest little capital.
Wellington may be the coolest little capital, with more cafes and bars per capita than New York City, it’s the perfect place to enjoy a drink from one of the city's quaint cafes or rooftop bars.
Wellington is easy to explore by foot, take in the stunning views of the harbour from a walk around Oriental Parade and stop off at the Museum of New Zealand, Te Papa Tongarewa on the waterfront- with free exhibitions all year round.
If you're keen to experience a bit of nature, Wellington has many walking tracks that are easily accessible from the city centre. Take in the view of the harbour from Mt Victoria lookout, or take in some of the best views of the city from Brooklyn Wind Turbine, popular with mountain bikers and runners.
Wellington is considered the hub of New Zealand arts and culture, offering an exciting array of theatre, music, sports and arts events throughout the year. For more information or to purchase tickets to upcoming events, please visit the Wellington NZ website.
