One of the easiest strolls in Wellington - allow an hour. This walk begins at the Post Office Square opposite Queens Wharf, and works its way along the waterfront to Te Papa. It takes in many of the buildings used in early Wellington wharfing. Monuments to special events in Wellington are marked out along the way as you head towards Civic Square.
Civic Square is home to the City Library, City Gallery, Wellington i-SITE Visitor Centre and the Town Hall Complex. Walk back over the bridge past the Boatshed to Te Papa. To add to the walk, stroll past Te Papa to Waitangi Park, past Port Nicholson Marina, and onto Oriental Parade, where the streetscape is among New Zealand's finest.
Take your photo with the Solace in the Wind sculpture. Pick up a gelati from Kaffe Eis or find a café and have a well-earned rest over a great local coffee, while you gaze back across the water to the city.
