    Getting there

    Wellington is located at the southern tip of the north island of New Zealand. Our harbour capital is small but interesting and vibrant. A cafe culture with great places to eat and sailing aplenty.  Nip over the Cook Strait on the ferry to experience and tour the amazing South Island - some of the best scenery in the world.
