Here is a list of clubs:

As I do not know where you live and if you know the NZ regions:
Masterton, Levin, the Manawatu, Tararua and the Wairarapa are in the wider Wellington region.

Travel Tips for Wellington

Kupe - the man who found NZ

by fishandchips

According to oral tradition, explorer and navigator Kupe found New Zealand and it was his wife, Kuramârôtini (behind every great man & all that!), who named it Aotearoa (long white cloud).

Kupe's journey was triggered by difficulties with fishing in Hawaiki, his homeland (thought to be Rai-atea in the Society Group). Oral tradition tells the story of the problem being a great octopus belonging to Kupe’s competitor, Muturangi. Kupe set out in his canoe with his brother in law in another to kill the octopus and such was the length of the pursuit that it brought them to New Zealand.

A monument to this great man in NZ history can be found on the waterfront not too far from Te Papa with his wife and one of his mates.

Umbrella usage

by salisbury3933

A lot of visitors to Wellington often wonder why Wellingtonians don't use umbrellas when it's raining.

Umbrellas are practically useless given the wind. Visitors who try to use them quickly find their umbrella turned outside by the wind.

Wellington is not called windy Wellington for nothing.

Miramar Links

by salisbury3933

Out near Wellington Airport is Miramar links. It's quite a tricky place to play, with narrowish fairways, and plenty of wind given its location. I found the first few holes a bit hard, but was okay from there.

A round is $60. Club hire is available, as are trundlers and carts.

Pics coming soon - Walking in Wellington

by craic

This is one of the most interesting things to do of all. As long as the weather is good enough -so do take advantage of a lovely day.
Even walking in the hilly suburbs can be fascinating - what with quaint staircases and zig-zags, quite an adventure.
But we are also fortunate in that we have the town belt - Mt Victoria and Tinakori Hill which were designated to be left as nature reserves in about 1900.
The possibilities are endless but just as an example let me tell you about a lovely walk I took today.

I got the number 2 bus to Miramar and got off at the Hataitai Shops, 2 stops past the tunnel.
Then I headed up Waipapa Rd and into Arawa Rd. I was now on the ridge of the hill and the walking was easy and the view was stunning! The harbour, the Oronorongas tipped with snow, the planes coming in to land at Rongotai Airport.
I was about to head down to Oriental Bay but I noticed the signs pointing to Byrd Memorial and Mt Victoria Lookout so I headed upwards. And I was not sorry I did. Wellington has never looked more beautiful.
Then I found a rough track with a sign pointing to the Southern Walkway and Oriental Bay so I headed off downhill. Bit steep and muddy - but I coped so anyone with a reasonable head for heights and and level of fitness should cope.
I did see a young girl on the uphill climb hanging over a rail exhausted being exhorted by her friends to show a bit of spirit - and she was barely 100 metres into her climb. The younger generation! Tsk tsk.

Then I hit Oriental Bay and had a well deserved snack and a coffee at the Parade cafe. Very nice indeed it was.

This is just an example. I could have made many variations on this walk. Spoilt for choice really.

Sexy Smooth Downtown Bar

by djramey about Jet Bar

Perhaps my favorite nightclub in all of Wellington (maybe even New Zealand) is Jet Bar. Though there is not a lot of gimics at this bar, it might be the most relaxed and hip place in the city. You walk into Jet Bar through a small door on Courtney Place and immediatly you are transported to what I can only imagine is fashionable New York City or Milan.

It's obvious the creators of Jet Bar have a great sense of style and wanted to integrate their idea of style into their bar. European tones and shapes frequent everything you sit on or see at Jet.

Two levels, Jet Bar continues downstairs where another more low key bar sits with halfcircle sofas and tables. It's also apparent that people watching is important here as everything opens out towards the center. Their is also a semi-private pool table room located just next to the stairs.

Lighting is very dim but seeing is not a problem. People come to Jet to see and be seen by the hip and flashy. Unlike the Matterhorn however, this is played down to a more grounded level. Your hippest and flashiest. Jeans and a graphic t-shirt work well here but so does your more dressed slacks and button down shirts.
