Wellington is well known for its wet weather and wild winds. But when it puts on fine weather, it’s something you do not want to waste.
Located at the south-western point of the North Island on the peninsula between the Cook Strait and Wellington Harbour, Wellington offers one of my most favourite waterfront strolls.
The waterfront walk along the wharf leads to the popular Oriental Parade. Home to luxurious living, quaint cafes and Oriental Bay’s beautiful man made beach.
You can follow the water around by car all the way to Owhiro Bay, or further with a 4WD vehicle. But if you travel up the small and winding roads of Mount Victoria, you arrive at the lookout which gives you an amazing 360 degree view of Wellington and it’s harbour, the Hutt Valley and the Cook Strait.
On really clear days you can see the South Island, and on clear winter days you can see its beautiful snow capped mountains!
Wellington has such natural beauty and so many things to see and do. This is only one of the many reasons I am proud to call New Zealand, and Wellington, home.
I recommend you get there and check it out for yourself. You will not be disappointed!
