Our ship docked at Wellington early on a Sunday morning.
What struck me immediately about Wellington as the capital city of New Zealand was that it felt slightly more alive than our own capital city, Canberra.
Even though parts of it look just like any other Australian city, it seems so much more nicer and interesting. Or perhaps it was just visitor bias. 😛
It was definitely enhanced by the beautiful waterfront.
On the day I saw kids diving off various piers. The above is the bigger one and this was what they were diving into.
And at another spot, more diving.
We didn’t have enough time so we took a very brisk stroll around the national museum – Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa. But from the little that I saw, I knew this was a great museum. So if you are vising Wellington, block out at least an hour or so to visit it. 🙂
