Port Rating: Not Rated
Wellington is a lovely city and the shopping is fantastic because the city centre with all shopping you would need is all within walking distance of the port.
the day we were there it was a very hot sunny day.
We walked to the bus station (about 10 minute brisk walk from the cruise terminal) we saved $15 dollars that mini buses were charging to pick you up and drop you off for. But there is plenty of transport available if you prefer.
We then caught the bus to Miramar which is where Weta workshop is located. It is free to look around the show room which has life size figures of golam, Gandolf, Lurts, King Kongs head etc. We paid to have a guided tour behind the scenes which was worth while and very interesting. You get a sneak peek at the innovation, passion and work that goes into making these critters and props and scale models all designed and created by this award winning company for award winning movies like lord of the rings, hobbit, Avatar and district 9 to name a few.
