Skyline Summer Gift Fairs a first for Wellington cruise ship visitors

Our boutique gift fair showcases local art and craft talent at the top of Wellington's cable car, especially for cruise ship visitors to Wellington.

Take a ride to the top of Wellington's famous cable car and you'll find not only an outstanding view over Wellington Harbour and the cruise ship you arrived in, but also a warm welcome at the Skyline Summer Gift Fair hosted every day a cruise ship visits Wellington.

Local art and craft talents showcase their wares and their skills in the lounge at the Wellington Skyline. Meet top greenstone carvers and admire their work. See spinners at work crafting hand-spun yarn in alpaca and merino wool. Jewellers describe their work in paua and silver. A cornucopia of art and craft, all locally-made, is available :

greenstone, bone, paua, pearl, vintage china, soy candles, hand-made soaps, floral perfumes, designer clothing, children's wear, hand-spun merino, alpaca and other yarns, knits, layettes, toys, papercraft, confectionary, possum fur and sheepskin, accessories, gifts and souvenirs.

Top off your visit with photographs in the indoor gallery while you sip locally-roasted coffee. Then, if weather permits, take a stroll through the Botanic Gardens back to town, or ride the Cable Car downhill to the metropolis.
