Cable Car | Wellington, New Zealand

September 15, 2015

The Wellington Cable Car is one of Wellington’s oldest treasured icons. Completed in 1902, the funicular railway was built to connect Lambton Quay (the main shopping street) and the suburb Kelburn, situated on the hills overlooking central Wellington.


The service runs every 10 minutes and travels through three tunnels, over three bridges and climbs 120 meters in just under 5 minutes. A round ticket will cost you $7.50 – or purchase a one way ticket for $4.00 and walk down the hill through the Botanical Gardens, back to the streets of Wellington.


At the top you can step back in time and visit the Cable Car Museum which is situated within the old winding house and holds two of the original ‘relentless red rattlers’. Or take a stroll through the gardens to the Carter Observatory and Planetarium and enjoy a magical show of New Zealand’s night sky under the dome.
