New Zealand - Wellington Must Visits

New Zealand - Wellington Must Visits

Since we are a New Zealand based company we wanted to share with our US audience or top places to eat, grab a coffee and explore through Wellington.

You may already know of Wellington as the capital of New Zealand. But, what you might not know is that it is home to Weta Workshop best known for their work on Lord of the Rings.

Wellington is filled with delicious restaurants, cafes and beautiful nature to explore. Have a read through of our Wellington based office's must-hit spots for your next New Zealand trip (let's hope it's soon!!)

Just remember NZ coffee's come as a standard double shot and they are STRONG but DELICIOUS.

Fidel’s

Don’t be fooled by the exterior and interior of Fidel's being an old school barber shop, it is rated as one of the best cafes in Wellington. Filled with delicious cabinet food, coffee, brunch and even weeknight dinner deals!! Get there early on the weekends, to grab a seat outside in the sun.

Grocer’s Shed

If you’re having a stroll around the beautiful beach on Island Bay, we recommend grabbing a coffee and donut from Grocer’s Shed.

Grab a seat at the window and take in the hustle and bustle of Wellingtons hub, Cuba street. Grab a wine or beer pairing and enjoy some of the best NZ pasta you will ever eat. Gluten-free and dairy-free options too!!

Old Quarter

We may have to call this as one of the best eats in all of Wellington. The Asian fusion flavors are out of this world. Make sure you book this one in as tables fill fast and bring some friends along so you can order a variety to share!

We love the atmosphere here, the open space and view into the kitchen gives it an epic New York style feel and the food is delicious – pasta, burgers you name it it’s good!

Island Bay

We love taking a weekend stroll around Island Bay. It’s close enough to the city that it is an easy drive, yet it feels as if you’re on a wee beach holiday.

Zealandia

This is a must, nestled in Karori is New Zealand’s first fenced eco-sanctuary. Filled with native birds, trees, and wildlife. It’s a great weekend activity for the family and the kids. There is a cost, but it’s 100% worth it.

Massey Memorial

Out at Point Halswell on the Miramar Peninsula, pull over to park once you spot the sign and take a short 5-minute walk up to this beautiful memorial.

Makara Wind Turbines

It wouldn’t be windy Wellington without a visit to the West Wind Turbines. These turbines are giants and are a must for any new visitors to Wellington. Just make sure to bring warm clothes and hold onto your hats!
