Cable Car, Wellington Region
One of Wellington's most popular tourist attractions. The journey begins at Lambton Quay, in the heart of the city. The cable car runs past the university and Kelburn Park to the top of the Botanic Gardens where the Cable Car Museum, Carter Observatory and the Planetarium are to be found. The views span out over the harbour from the Hutt Valley to Mount Victoria. Take a return trip or take a walk through the gardens and the historic suburb of Thorndon.
Take the cable car to the top of the Botanical Gardens - walk down through gardens
Great view of Wellington central - nice wee cafe at the top and in the gardens. In Summer, there's plays/jazz etc in the open air stages in the gardens - some free of charge, some for a modest fee.
Take the cable car to the Botanical Gardens from Lambton Quay. Good fun for a stroll and it gives a beautiful view over the city.
