Our most recommended Wellington (Region) Entry tickets

Wellington: Return Cable Car Ticket

1. Wellington: Return Cable Car Ticket

Follow the Cable Car signpost around Lambton Quay to find the hidden Cable Car Lane in the heart of the city centre.  Wellington's iconic Cable Car travels through three historic tunnels and over three bridges. There are three intermediate stations; the residential areas of Clifton, Talavera and Salamanca. Victoria University of Wellington and Kelburn Park Fountain can be accessed from the Salamanca Station. Enjoy the panoramic views of Wellington city and the harbor from the top of the Cable Car. To get back down into the city, there are several walks through the hillsides of the Botanic Garden, including a beautiful 40-minute stroll back down to the city centre via the historic Bolton Street Cemetery and the Beehive. Or if you prefer an easier route back down, choose the return journey option. This allows you plenty of time to enjoy the views and explore the surrounding attractions at the summit before heading back.

3. Pūkaha National Wildlife Centre Self-Guided Entry Ticket

Immerse yourself in the New Zealand landscape as you walk through a 942-hectare forest, home to the wild kōkako and kākā. Connect with the local fauna in an ethical way at Pūkaha Centre, an unfenced sanctuary for wildlife where endangered birds are bred for release across Aotearoa New Zealand. Book your entry ticket to learn about the forest restoration work and possibly see birds with their chicks in the aviaries. Enjoy your experience knowing you're helping to maintain this protected environment, as all proceeds go back into the restoration projects. The highlight of your journey will definitely be seeing kiwi birds in the nocturnal house. During the breeding season, it may be possible to see kiwi chicks being fed by the rangers. You may also come across wild birds in the forest such as the titipounamu, kārearea, and the kererū.

What people are saying about Wellington (Region)

It was fabulous to visit Pukāha yesterday to see native New Zealand wildlife and learn about their breeding and conservation work. I particularly enjoyed seeing the North Island Brown Kiwi in the nocturnal house and the Eels and Kākā being fed (at 1:30pm and 3:00pm daily respectively). The self-guided experience meant I could follow the aviary loop at my own pace. While you book for a start time your self-guided entry ticker is available all day so it doesn’t matter if you arrive early or late. Overall, I would recommend this experience if you’re wanting to see native New Zealand birds up-close.

Great variety of exhibitions, lots of interactive ones, impressive building. We were able to get early access to the current ( and fabulous) Gallipoli exhibition.. great luxury to see it at an earlier/uncrowded time. We also had a beaut orientation tour, to the museum, and also to first peoples culture Many thanks Te Papa

An excellent display. We had one of your staff explain a lot about various aspects of Gallipoli. The Wetta Workshop creations were amazing. We left feeling quite sad learning what the soldiers went through.

Thoroughly enjoyed our ride on the Cable car and exploring the Botanical gardens up top. There are plenty picnic spots on a nice day.

Seniors friendly. Comfortable and easy to navigate. Great cafe. One very friendly employee. Greets everybody well
