    The Cable Car

    No visit to Wellington is complete without taking a ride in the cable car. The route climbs from the shops of Lambton Quay up past Kelburn Park and Victoria University to the suburb of Kelburn. The final stop is near the Botanical Gardens.

    Take a ride up the hill on the cable car. There's a great view of the city and the harbour from the top.

    It's $1.80 one way and $3.60 return.

    At the top of the cable car, there's a small museum outlining the history of this service in Wellington, with old cars etc.

    Wander in and take a look.
