On your way to Wellington, stop in Featherston, home to the world’s only Fell Engine. A must-do is C’est Cheese, an artisan cheese shop filled with cheese from around the country and a great range of deli treats.
The journey over the Remutaka Range offers great views in every direction.
Wellington is compact, cultured and full of character. Nestled between the harbour and the hills, the downtown area is ideal for explorations on foot. Enjoy cafes, restaurants and an array of museums. Dance, theatre and musical performances are a Wellington speciality. As New Zealand’s capital, this city is rich in political history.
